FOREWORD 



jjlver a million home-planners who "didn't know where 
to turn next" have turned for guidance to the book you now hold in your 
hands. Like you, they qualified to receive Home Owners' Catalogs 
• absolutely free. 

■ ■he publishers of this book have had sixty years of intimate 
contact with every branch of the building industry. We have long felt 
that home-planners should have at their fingertips complete information 
— as supplied by leading firms— about the many quality products and 
services that make a house a home. And because home-planning time 
is a busy time, we believe home-planners should receive this information 
in the most convenient and attractive form— between the covers of a 
book to be treasured . . . and consulted many, many times. 




|ere, in Home Owners' Catalogs, you have hundreds of 
pages of stimulating ideas and interesting facts to help you plan your 
new home. Now, even though there are so many things for you to think 
about, you know where to turn next. 



INDEX INFORMATION . . . For your guidance. You will want to read 
Home Owners' Catalogs from cover to cover but for re-reference and so 
that you may more readily locate the home product or service in which 
you or your family are interested at any specific time, we have estab- 
lished on the following pages, index classifications under products. 

Because the bound catalog pages in this volume are not numbered in 
sequence we have inserted the catalogs in alphabetical order accord- 
ing to the names of the companies whose catalogs appear therein. This 
will make it easy for you to locate the home planning information, 
products or services in which you are interested. Simply refer to the 
desired index classification and look for the bound-in catalog in 
alphabetical, company-name sequence.

FOR HOME OWNERS' CATALOGS 




You plan your home . . . 



Planning your own home is a glorious adventure for all the 
family. It is a tremendous step you are taking, and may 
seem a little bewildering at first. Probably never again will 
you spend so much money on one thing. So you simply 
cannot afford to make mistakes, mistakes you might have 
to live with for the rest of your days. 

That's why you should go at this job slowly and seri- 
ously, using the best professional advice. This Guide is part 
of that advice, designed to eliminate some possible blun- 
ders. Dependable help makes home planning absorbing 
and rewarding, fun while you're doing it and a joy for years 
to come in the pleasure the finished product gives you. 

Home planning in its first stage is partly a family 
question-and-answer game. You know you want a home. 
But do you know exactly what kind of a home— and a setting 
—you want? If you do you're almost unique. Practically 
everyone is agreed on generalities. They want homes which 
are well planned, well built, handy, comfortable and attrac- 
tive, but they are hazy as to materials they prefer, whether 
this or that heating is the thing, where to use fluorescent 
lights, and about porches and front halls, and whether it's 
a good idea to substitute a dining area for a dining room. 

Now no one but you can answer many of the dozens of 
questions which are going to come up. But right now you 
probably don't know half the questions and certainly not 
the answers yourselves. This Guide is packed with vital 
questions to help you clarify your own ideas and make 
necessary decisions. 

After you know where you will build, supply yourself 
with a folder, lots of paper and plenty of sharp pencils be- 
fore you begin. As you discuss, make decisions and fill in 
answers, make ample notes. If you leaf through the question 



lists now, you'll find there are many questions you're not 
yet ready to answer. When you've finished studying these 
pages, you'll be much surer about the answers. 

You will save yourself some disappointments if you set 
a rough budget before you get toq far in your planning. 
It's good to have a springboard figure of what you can 
afford. Considered a good way to arrive at this is to mul- 
tiply your year's income by one-and-a-half. This will give 
you a safe cost for the house you can afford. Then multiply 
your yearly income by three and you have a maximum figure 
of cost. The final, over-all cost of your new home had best 
lie between these two amounts, just where being partly 
conditioned by how much cash you can put into your down 
payment. 

When you've got your financial status down pat and 
your rough architectural plans in hand, go and talk your 
project over with a member of a responsible money-lending 
institution in your community. One of the first things 
they'll be interested in is the neighborhood you plan to 
build in. The chances are you've spent many Sundays look- 
ing at sites and deciding just that. Only after you've picked 
your lot and straightened out a financing system, will you 
be ready to have final working drawings made and out for 
bids. But let's get back to the planning! 

Professional architectural advice is necessary to sound 
home planning. However, to get the most for the money 
you pay for this service, you'll do well to be clear as possible 
what kind of house you honestly want before you take your 
problem to the expert. He can realize your ideas in bricks 
and wood and stone and metal only if you can tell him 
precisely what they are. So gather the family around the 
conference table and start planning. 



{Copyright 1950— F. W. Dodge Corporation) 




irst things come first 



When it comes to home planning, every single member of 
the family should have his of her say, because you're all 
going to live together here, and God willing, be happy 
under diis roof. Listen to all voices around the family 
council table. This makes a fine democratic set-up, but it 
isn't going to work unless you all know what it's practical 
to have. 

There's been a lot of talk about new developments in 
building materials and methods. Some of these are wonder- 
ful improvements, and some of them are far, far in the 
future. Start by bringing yourself up-to-date, getting a grasp 
on the facts. Read the pages of this book through atten- 
tively and then you'll have a basic knowledge of what's 
what. When you've finished your preliminary run-through, 
tackle the questionnaires, consulting together, and fill them 
in as far as you're able to. 

About now is the time to get out cross-section paper and 
to make your sketch diagrams of room layouts (see page 8) . 
Try arranging room units in a general over-all scheme, 
bearing in mind the nature of your lot (best exposure, 
prevailing breeze, slope, areas for outdoor living, etc.)'. 
Don't get too agitated if you can't devise a scheme which 
works. Actually, that is the job of an architecturally-trained 
expert, but by making rough layouts you will prepare your- 
self to tell him some of your ideas. Try to establish dimen- 
sions which take into account the new furniture which you 
will want, so it will fit in pleasantly and conveniently. 

Spread your sketch planning over a number of sessions 
and a number of weeks. Compromises are effected gradu- 
ally. Flash ideas, at first hotly defended, subside. You're 
going to live in this house a long time. You can afford to 
take time to get it right. 



When you've got a fairly unanimous picture of what you 
like, find your expert and start working with him on it. The 
matter of money will now become increasingly important, 
because he is trained to be able to give you rough estimates 
from early sketches. Don't be down-hearted if you have to 
cut your cloth to fit your purse. Nine times out of ten an 
even better plan will emerge, sparer and more efficient than 
your first dream. 

Though you are full of enthusiasm for the life you will 
lead in your new home, in sober fact you should remember 
that one day you may want to sell it. From this point of 
view it's sage to curb any leanings toward bizarre or odd 
features. 

When you have acceptable sketch plans it is time for 
you to go back to your financing institution. You are armed 
with some estimated figures, ready to learn how best to 
swing the money end of your home. 

It is only when all this spade work is over that you will 
be ready to have final plans, working drawings, "blueprints'' 
made. Naturally your expert will draw them, but don't be 
intimidated into accepting the plans if you're not wholly 
satisfied. Continue to make necessary changes and improve- 
ments until you have things right. They are simple on 
paper; they will be impossioie later without added costs 
and heartbreak after construction has started. 

The list that follows has been arranged to make it easy 
ror you to add pencil comments. Take full advantage of 
this feature. Now is the time to record all your ideas in full. 
Later will be too late. 

Check or fill in all the items you can on the next page 
thinking always of what you really want to do in your new 
home, and the facilities therefore to be provided.

You 

draw 
a 
plan . 



The easiest and most accurate way to set about 
making rough plans is on cross-section or graph 
paper. It is ruled into l/ 8 inch squares by light blue 
lines. You can buy it by the sheet or the pad at your 
stationer's. 

Decide on a scale. A square on the paper to in- 
dicate a square foot" of house is handy. But if you 
make the sides of two squares equal one foot, you 
have */4 inch scale, and the furniture drawings on 
page 1 may be traced and cut out so that you may 
fit them onto your plans. "Quarter inch scale" 
means that *4 inch measured on paper indicates 
1 foot in the actual house. 

Don't bother with refinements like thickness of 
walls. Your architectural expert can take care of all 




that. What you are after is general proportioi 
and relationship of rooms to each other on theli 
To arrive at this you will first have to make a { 
plan. Here you will naturally employ a sn 
scale, the side of a square equalling perhaps 5 1 
Besides putting the points of the compass wh 
they belong, indicate prevailing wind, sun, 
and other orientation factors. So start with 
plan to decide on the general location of the ro 
in relation to sun, wind, view, street, etc. (S 
diagram, left.) 

Then at a larger scale (Vg"=l foot is go 
these preliminary schematic plan sketches) 
with the living room, the room which will bet 
center of your lives, and fit the parts of the ho 
to that. It is no more important than any i 
room, but it seizes the imagination, for it is t 
heart and holds the hearth. 

When you have a plan scheme that seems a 
right at this scale— draw it at quarter inch : 
and arrange your furniture "cut-outs" on the [ 
This will help locate doors and windows sot 
will be wall-space and clearance space. Youri 
working drawings and blue prints will be at t 
scale too. ("Cut-outs" are shown on page 10.) 

Turn to the check lists which will remind yo 
many planning features vital to the smooth i 
ning of the whole house. 

Sketches show a plot plan and a rough 1 
plan drawn on cross-section paper. They do i 
include every last detail which will go into ] 
house, but they do have the main design elerr 
You may be sure, in using them as an additio 
check, and in following a similar method youi 
be crystallizing your ideas in the logical way.

ABC's of planning . • • 



Your house is taking form. You have checked the 
Needs and Requirements List. You know the num- 
ber of rooms you will have, about where they will 
be^ something about their size. Now you can get 
down to studying whether your room layouts are 
going to work. The best way to discover this is by 
asking yourself what you will want to do in any one 
room, and then seeing whether you can do it as 
you've set it up. 

Front hall first. Can it be reached under cover 
from a car on rainy days? Does it prevent casual 
callers seeing all that goes on in the living room? 
Does it also prevent chilly drafts? Does it have ade- 
quate closet accommodations where outer garments 
and overshoes can be put ? Can the floor be freed of 
mud and dampness easily? Long halls are not only 
inconvenient, they're also expensive since the more 
compact the final plan, the shorter the outside walls. 

At times'the living room is a place for entertain- 
ing. Can a group gather cozily around the fireplace, 
play games? Have you provided storage space for 
game equipment ? Will a gathering of friends divide 
up naturally into friendly groups as your furniture 
is placed ? 

At other times the living room may mean a place 
for reading, sewing, doing homework, keeping 
house accounts. Is there place for the easy chairs, 
sofas, tables, desk, for doing these things? Room 
for armside tables? Well located outlets for the 
right lighting without interminable and entangling 
electric cords ? Have you ample shelf space for col- 
lections, if you're a family of hobbies? Built-in cabi- 
nets for albums or phonograph records? 

The dining room is far less flexible and so less 
complicated to arrange, but it takes some doing. The 
big decision to make here is whether it will be an 
integral part of living room or kitchen, or a room of 
its own. Either way you won't want the dining room 
table any further from the range than need be and 
you must have china-linen-glass-silver storage areas 
handy. Be sure, too, that you leave adequate lanes 
for serving. 



The kitchen has become a scientifically planned 
food preparation center, and so a delight to work in. 
Appliance manufacturers have engineered it to a 
state of wonderful exactness. Unless you have strong 
convictions about special features, the home owner 
cannot do better than to study the basic layouts they 
have evolved (see pages 16 and 17), designed to 
fit snugly into various shaped spaces. But you must 
decide where the laundry is to be done, and whether 
the basement will be handed over to the youngsters 
for entertaining, used as a workshop, or store room, 
or both. Where will you place your heating units? 

When you get to the bedrooms, be sure you leave 
ample, unbroken wall areas for bed heads, dressers 
and dressing tables. Do have enough free floor space 
for a slipper chair or two. Readers-in-bed will make 
sure of the electric outlets so that reading lamps can 
be just right. 

Have you left room in the bathroom for a gener- 
ous clothes hamper? Will the medicine chest be big 
enough for accumulating adhesive rolls and cough 
syrups ? Is the linen closet-near at hand ? Are there 
outlets for your electric razor, the electric heater 
and such ? 

Take great pains in all rooms to see that light 
switches are placed where they seem handiest to you. 
Be sure steps are brightly Jit for safety. Finally 
garner every inch you can for storage. Closets and 
store rooms can make all the difference between 
comfort and crowding. Closets designed and 
equipped for the things they will store save lots of 
space. 

In order that you may allow adequate space for 
various pieces of furniture, a page has been devoted 
to y 4 inch scale diagrams from which you can trace 
cutouts. Dimensions are average, but many varia- 
tions in size do occur, so do not take these as final. 
Cut out the furniture diagrams from your tracings, 
making as many duplicates as you need. Then test 
the workings of your y A " scale plan by arranging 
the furniture cut-outs in the rooms. It is a good idea 
to fill out the check lists for each room first.

hall or foyer . . . 




1 he entrance hall of your home says, "Welcome". It gives 
the invaluable first impression. So don't let it be cramped, 
colorless, impersonal. Make it attractive as well as useful. 
The foyer affords privacy for the rooms beyond. It cuts off 
drafts. It usually has a closet where hats and coats, umbrellas 
and galoshes and such are kept. Even better, if your budget 
permits, there is a downstairs lavatory off it, with room for 
a dressing table and full length mirror. 

The foyer takes hard wear, people coming in out of all 
weathers. Plan a floor which can take it. Also, have the 
entrance well heated. 

The main trouble in making a successful entrance hall 
is that its walls must be broken by so many doors. Try to 
group these so that they are orderly. And save at least one 
length of wall for a chair or bench where anyone who must 



/< 



wait can be seated. Reserve space for a small but terribly 
useful table, for door chimes, for telephone stand. And 
plan the lighting with care. 

If it is humanly possible, devise the placing of your 
garage so it leads into your house, so you can get to the 
kitchen with packages without going outdoors. 

At the same time, weigh the advantages of an outside 
exit to your basement. 

The service entrance must be considered too, placed 
where it will be convenient for deliveries to be made but 
not so conspicuous that it will detract from the front 
entrance. At the side or the back is usually best. And near 
it you will need a neat concealed place for the recepticals 
for waste and garbage. Many an otherwise good looking 
house is unsightly because these things were not thought of.

I his is the room where you will mostly live, the heart of 
your home. In it you, as a family, will work and play and 
entertain your friends. Don't copy Mrs. Charles' living 
room, even though you had a lovely time there. The Charles 
live for their music, have the main furniture group around 
the radio and piano. Your family delights, say, in games or 
outdoor living. Therefore an entirely different sort of room 
for living is going to suit you. 

But there is one practically universal living room feature 
you're bound to want. That is the fireplace, the hearth. If 
possible have it on a window-less wall, since competition 
with sunlight vitiates the friendly brightness of the fire. Be 
sure to have it where furniture drawn up around it is out 
of main traffic lanes. Allow for a place to store firewood 
neatly. Remember that your fire will keep you warm as well 
as content so consider building a heat circulating unit into 
the fireplace and chimney. 

In all parts of the room study your traffic problems as 



1. Primary furniture is grouped closely about the fireplace. Piano 
is parallel to wail to provide maximum space in living room.

and center primary group, for conversation, tea, relaxation, etc. 



5. Game-table group occupies almost the same floor area as a ba 
grand piano. Placement at an angle is intended for informal rooi 



rabidly as though you were a cop. There will be coming 
and going, of course, but if your living room degenerates 
into a passageway between front door and back, stairs and 
kitchen, terrace and dining room, it is a failure. One way 
to avoid this is to set doors which lead to other parts of the 
house as close to each other as practical, so that passers - 
through won't have to tour the whole room. 

Plan the living room size and shape to accommodate 
what you will do in this space: games, reading, viewing 
television, listening, talking, sewing, etc. In each case make 
room for a group so you can sit down together. If a window- 
wall is desired, plan for easy accessibility to outdoor areas. 
Also provide storage room for special purpose tables, port- 
folios, games and the rest. 

This sounds as though the living room were going to 
have to be enormous, but furniture groupings can be used 
for more than one purpose. Under-scaled rather than over- 
scaled pieces of furniture will help to consolidate space. 



Orderly arrangement is the real key to getting a lot of 
living from every square foot. It can be arrived at only by 
the most careful planning, the most searching discussion. 

Whether your room be small or large, it should look 
right, serene. This is achieved in part by having good pro- 
portions of length to width to height. Here your trained 
expert will know the answers. But to help you in rough 
planning, a room whose width is to its length as 3 to 4, 
or 4 to 5, is in good proportion and your expert will work 
out the proper ceiling height. 

On page 10 are scale plans of furniture you may want 
to have. The outline drawings are for you to trace and cut 
out and arrange on your plan, so that you can experiment 
with placement. They are scaled y 4 inch to the foot and 
represent standard, though not invariable furniture sizes. 
Windows and doors do not appear on the plans shown, 
but heavy lines indicate best positions for unbroken walls 
in relation to furniture groupings.

Dining room or area 

Will your dining room be a part of your living room, or 
separate? If it's part of the living room, an "L" plan will 
work well, the dining area curtained or divided off by 
sliding partitions or folding screens. This way, table setting 
or. clearing may be shut off, or the area made part of the 
living room between meals. 

Wherever you do eat you will want: (a) adequate lanes 
for serving, (b) minimum distance between range and 
table, with serving surfaces between, (c) good, close-at- 
hand storage space for linens, silver, glass and china. 



Several dining room arrangements are shown in the 
sketches. Here serving lanes are of minimum width. Make 
them wider if you can. 

In your family conclaves, ask yourself whether the din- 
ing room will be used for more things than just meals. 
Will you play games on this table? Will the children study 
their lessons here? Watch your planning and lighting with 
the answers to these questions in mind. Make sure, too, 
that you've plenty of electric outlets for toaster, coffee 
maker and any other appliances you may be getting. Place

these convenient to counter, serving table or sideboard 
where there is room to operate them efficiently. Inciden- 
tally, you must think ahead about furniture like buffets, 
cabinets and the like, and allow wall space enough so that 
they will fit. If space is limited, unit-type cabinets, which 
utilize every inch, are worth considering. 

Consider having a "pass cabinet" opening from kitchen 
or pantry into the dining area through which dishes and 
trays can be -passed. Under the "pass cabinet" can be a 
counter to serve as breakfast or snack bar, saving no end 
of work. Work saving and step saving'features are mighty 
important and now is the time to put them in your plans.

to use this scheme in a living-dining

5. A long narrow dining room results 
when wall pieces are at the ends, and an 
end entrance from the kitchen is needed, 
with wider doors from living room. 



6. Spaces smaller than the usual 
minimum can be utilized if unit 
type seats are included, but seat- 
ing and table-service comfort 
are sacrificed to some extent.

The kitchen . . . 



1 he lady of the house may well spend more time in her 
kitchen than any place else, so she will want it not only 
efficient, but also charming. 

You can have a kitchen as compact and ship-shape as the 
galley of a yacht if you want but the trend is toward more 
spacious kitchens rather than smaller, but with space that 
is useful as well as pleasant. An informal dining corner or 
snack-bar is not only convenient and time-saving but can 
be made colorful and gay. It would be useful too as a meal- 
planning "kitchen office" and a place for relaxing or read- 
ing while keeping an eye or ear on the pressure cooker. 
Here you can keep your cookbooks, recipe cards, records 
and perhaps a radio. 

One end of the kitchen can be divided off with a folding 
gate to make an easily watched play-area for the little tots. 
By careful planning the laundry with its labor saving ma- 
chines can be combined with the kitchen in such a way that 
one function will not interfere with the other. 

There are so many different ways of developing your 



kitchen into an efficient, attractive, interesting multi-pur- 
pose room that they can only be suggested here. But there 
are a few principles for planning the food-preparation part 
of the kitchen that will save untold steps and time. 

For efficiency, it has been discovered that the best way 
to plan is by "use-areas." There are three: (1) for food 
storage, (2) for food preparation and clean-up and (3) for 
cooking and serving. Start at the service entrance, through 
which food enters your house and put (1) nearest to it. 
Thus the hamburgers and eggs will go directly into the 
refrigerator, vegetables into bins, staples into cabinets. 
Next comes (2), of which the focal center is the sink with 
drain boards, counters, cabinets and drawers for utensils. 
The last, (3), is furthest from the back door and nearest 
to the serving counter or pantry or dining room. 

Each of the three stages of meal making requires its own 
equipment, which will be grouped where it's needed. For 
instance, your spice assortment close by or over the stove, 
your vegetable brushes at the sink. You will be glad to have 
counters in all areas, a place to put your packages down 
by the door while you take off your hat, a place to put the 
eggs and bacon while you fish the toast out of the toaster. 

Much equipment goes in cabinets and drawers under 
and over the counters. Plan their placement with a wom- 
an's height and arm-reach in mind. See, too, that you allow 





An efficient plan having three adjoining walls; refrigerator (1) and 
cabinets for staples are near the back door. On the next wall are 
sink and counters (2) for cleaning and preparing the food for cook- 
ing. The third working wall takes the range (3) and serving space. 



A kitchen plan for a space where there are only two adjoinin 
walls free for equipment. The sequence of operations is still th 
same: Store, Prepare, Cook, Serve, Clean Up, Put Away. Breal

plenty of clearance for working comfortably between coun- 
ter top and cabinet bottom. 

Have permanent, long wearing counter tops installed at 
the time you build your kitchen, with one where cutting 
with a sharp knife will not leave irreparable scratches. 
A big window not only lets in plenty of light, but also 
makes the kitchen cheerful. Here you may grow herbs, as 
well. Many a family is finding that the cost of a picture 
window is well justified in the kitchen. Lighting and elec- 
trical outlets must be planned thoughtfully to insure effi- 
ciency. Plan, foo, for ventilating devices that will not only 
keep the kitchen cooler but will keep odors from straying 
through the house. 

There are three typical successful kitchen plans shown 
here. Each is step saving, logical in arrangement. No one 
is better than the others. Choose according to the space 
you have and your own preference, deciding by imagining 
yourself getting a meal in any one of the three and so 
discovering which works best for you. 

Before final plans of the kitchen can be made you will 
have to make your selections of equipment to be sure that 
they will all fit together along the walls. The manufacturers 
catalogs deserve your careful study for sizes, styles, and 
ideas or suggestions for efficient arrangement before you 
make up your mind.

The laundry . . . 



The amount of laundry equipment you can fit into a 
kitchen may prove inadequate and the collisions between 
washing and cooking on laundry day would be incon- 
venient. Also the resale value of your house probably will 
be greater if you have a separate laundry. So include it in 
your plans from the first if you can. It can also be the 
sewing room where clothes are mended before they're 
ironed. 

Today's best laundries have four main pieces of equip- 
ment: The washing machine, the clothes dryer, the ironer 
or mangle and the ironing board. Add to these a hamper 
into which the soiled linen chute empties, a sorting table 
or counter, cabinets for supplies, a hot plate for boiling 
linens and making starch, and you can see that you'll need 
plenty of room, neatly planned. 



Where laundry planning calls for clearest thinking is 
in its wiring. In the first place, it must obviously be flooded 
with revealing but not glaring light. What is more, local- 
ized lights should make it possible to examine clothes with 
an eagle eye at all stages. It is almost axiomatic that the 
laundry walls be light in tone to reflect light well. 

Equipment should be arranged in sequence, as kitchen 
equipment is. First hamper, work table for sorting (and 
possibly bins for temporary storage), also supply cabinets. 
Next, laundry trays and washing machine. The dryer and 
ironer may be on either the adjoining or the opposite wall. 
Leave room nearby for a clothes basket for the finished 
products. 

The layout plan and perspective indicate proper spacing 
of equipment to give you enough elbow room. Don't crowd 
more equipment into an equal space. The plan drawing 
shows arrows to indicate travel. By this arrangement you 
may dry clothes indoors with a gas or electric unit, or out- 
doors, weather permitting.

Closets . . . 



Closet strategy has become as scientifically perfect as 
kitchen strategy, and wonderful equipment is available to 
heighten its effectiveness: racks, bars, sliding trays, etc. 
Still the gear of any one family is complicated and bulky, 
so do a lot of figuring before you write O. K. on your closet 
plans. 

The standard depth for a closet is 2 feet. Three feet of 
width is a minimum allowance for one person's clothes. 
It is scanty, when you take into account summer moth 
bags, winter furs and the undesirability of sandwiching 
well-pressed woolens in too close. In any case, add 25 per 
cent to any space allowance you think right, as a margin 
of safety. You'll be glad for it. 

To get the mpst from every inch of storage space, have 
your closet doors the full width of the closet. If they slide, 



they won't eat up space in your rooms. Light the interior 
so that floor and shelves and hanging sections are bright. 
Paint or paper in a light color. Be sure walls are well fin- 
ished, floors meticulously laid. Moths thrive in cracks. 
Full-length mirrors may be installed to advantage on the 
inside of hinged closet doors, since being able to move a 
mirror gives greatest visibility. 

Pull-out bins or trays add immeasurably to the ease of 
keeping the linen closet orderly. They are grand, too, for 
storing off-season hats, sport shoes and the like. Install 
clothes rods for children's closets low enough so the young 
can reach them. A well-arranged closet may develop orderly 
habits in a child. Anyway it's worth trying. 

It is not enough to merely supply closet space, the space 
must be planned to take each and every item you can think 
of, must be divided and supplied with the necessary rods, 
shelves, bins, drawers, holders and compartments, etc., 
fitted to use all the space to its maximum— literally a place 
for everything, predetermined.

Bedrooms . . . 



1 here's an oft' forgotten element to take into account 
when you get to figuring out your bedrooms— the element 
of noise. Are trucks going to pound down your street in 
the witching hour? Are growing youngsters going to joggle 
in jive in the living room while you toss upstairs? Then 
study the room placing, arrangement and materials. 

The master bedroom should be as quiet as may be and 
yet, paradoxically, should command quick entry to the 
nursery. If your family is growing, your children entertain- 
ing friends, you may be glad if you allow enough space so 
your room can be a bed -sitting room on occasion. This 
means a good-sized room. Beds are big. Add to their own 
length and width, space so you can get to both sides of 
them when you make them up. It saves a deal of trouble. 
Allow for bedside tables or units big enough for individual 
lamps, clocks, books and general impedimenta. 



Leave nothing to chance when you plan bedroom wall 
space. Know to the inch the width of the beds you mean 
to use and leave ample wall space for them. Don't have 
windows so close as to keep you in icy drafts all winter long, 
or windows at the foot which will bathe you in the full 
blaze of the rising sun. On the other hand, do try to con- 
trive cross ventilation for steaming nights, and general 
brightness for days you spend in bed getting over grippe. 

Traffic lanes should be calculated as accurately in the 
bedroom as in the dining room. You will want free, un- 
blocked access to your closet. If your dressing table cannot 
be incorporated in your bathroom, it belongs near your 
closet. 

Increasingly parents are planning children's rooms which 
grow with the children. From a nursery the room becomes 
a study, then living room of one's own. It is wonderful for 
your children to be able to have overnight guests, and 
where room is at a premium, this is feasible with double- 
decker beds. 

In using the check list with your sketch plans, identify 
each bedroom first by a letter. Then study each room. 
Finish checking each room before going on to the next.

Plumbing 

and sanitation . . . 



Jbven for a small family, two bathrooms are mighty con- 
venient and more are better. By placing baths side by side, 
or directly under one another, they can be made to cost 
less than if they are far flung, since this way the same 
piping will supply and drain both sets of fixtures. You can 
even, by thrifty figuring, get two bathrooms out of one, as 
the sketch below shows. Only cost is for a partition and 
one extra fixture, whereas the usefulness of the area is 
almost doubled. 

A big bathroom is a delight, but actually a small one can 



be nearly as serviceable. Don't let it get smaller than 7 
feet by 5y 2 , and 10 by 5^2 * s n^ch more comfortable. 
One justification for enlarging your own bathroom is so 
that you can install cupboards, shelves and dressing table, 
reducing crowding in bedroom and closets. 

Be sure your bathrom is as nearly waterproof as possible. 
Even if you don't let the tub splash over, condensation 
will dampen walls and floor. Special wall and floor surfaces, 
manufactured for the purpose, are not only efficient, but 
many of them are truly beautiful. Any upped original cost 
for installing them will be amortized by the repairs they 
will save you. 

If economy has to be practiced, be sure that it does not 
affect the selection of your pipes. Here the very best is the 
only possible quality to select. Local water conditions 
govern the selection of the kind of pipe that will last long- 
est where you are going to build. A plumber is a very

bathroom smaller than this will be 
inadequate. 



expensive guest. A water conditioner where water needs 
treatment, will help to preserve your pipes, to say nothing 
of your skin and your disposition. 

Bathroom planning is mechanically simple, since fix- 
tures are generally standard sizes. Look out for windows 
over bath tubs, drafty for the bather and hard to open and 
close. Provide more medicine cabinet space than you think 
you'll ever need and you'll be the envy of your friends. 
Additional shallow shelves over the tub are good for soap, 
bath cosmetics, J>rushes and such. A woman will be glad 
of a drying rack for stockings and undies. 

Many men like showers. The tub-shower combination 
is always useful. If possible fit in both a separate shower 
stall and a tub. In the country or suburban house, a down- 
stairs shower stall is grand, gardeners, golfers and small fry 
will use it avidly and wear and tear on the house will be 
reduced all along the line. If you must pump your own 



water, pick a shower head which throws a good but con- 
centrated spray as this kind uses water remarkably spar- 
ingly, but supplies a fine bath. 

You can go as far as you like, or can afford, in making 
your bathroom a complete and up-to-date contributor to 
health, beauty and a sense of well being. There are numer- 
ous worthwhile accessories. Bathroom scales will help keep 
track of your avoirdupois and the children's growth. An 
electric radiant heater will be welcome in brisk fall days 
before general heating is on. A dental lavatory will save 
congestion and fuss. You can build in or provide space for 
a sun lamp too. 

Don't forget you will need an adequate water supply out- 
side the house as well as in, so locate "hose-bibs" (at least 
two) for your garden hose and select water pipes of a 
proper size. And a faucet in the garage, and a floor drain 
there too for car washing in winter.

Heating and 
air-conditioning . . . 



Your heating system should give you the heat you want, 
efficiently, dependably, economically, and as automatically 
as possible. It ought to be up to the worst winter weather. 
Aid and abet it by insulating your house well, and by get- 
ting as much supplemental warmth as you can from the 
sun through double-glazed windows. 

The three best-known ways of heating your house are 
by hot water, steam or warm air. No one is best for every 
home, but one may be the best for your locality and your 
type of house. Each one of the three systems mentioned 
can be either a gravity or forced circulation system. The 



latter steps up the efficiency of heating systems. Circula- 
tion is forced, where hot water is the heating medium, by 
a circulating water pump; for warm air it is a fan arrange- 
ment, and with steam, vacuum valves do the trick. One of 
the main reasons why forced circulation is desirable is be- 
cause it gives results so quickly when automatic controls 
switch on the heat. Besides this the units in your room, 
like radiators, convectors and ducts, can be smaller with 
a forced circulation system. Result, more clear wall space 
for furniture and a better looking room all around. The 
drawing below show various ways of heating your rooms. 
Heating systems have been improved beyond belief in 
recent years and one of the greatest steps forward is in the 
manufacture of heating controls. The most ingenious of 
these are automatic, will supply you with the temperature 
you need for as long as you like, will switch on or off at 
the hour and temperature you select. What this means on

s* / y / 



Radiators are one of the commonest means of trans- 
ferring heat from the boiler to the air of the room. 
Water or steam flows through the radiator and 
heat is given off by convection and radiation in 
the room. It is always welt therefore to leave 
enough space around the radiator to permit air to 
circulate freely. A heat reflecting surface behind 
the radiator adds to its efficiency. 



Convectors, usually thinner than radiators, may be 
all, leaving only an opening at 
the top and bottom for the circulation of air.

a snowy morning, only an old-time commuter can realize. 

Hand in hand with heating goes its obverse, air condi- 
tioning. But with a simple forced air heating system, you 
may be able to achieve partial .cooling, for this equipment 
is capable of circulating cooler basement or night air 
through your rooms. Individual room air conditioners serve 
special purposes, such as making one or two rooms com- 
fortable. An attic fan properly installed is a good cooler too. 
Complete year round air conditioning does more,— tech- 
nically it takes moisture out of the air, as well as cooling 
it in summer, puts moisture in and warms it in winter, 
filters the air the year round. Whatever system you use to 
achieve heating and cooling, it will work the better for a 
sound insulation job throughout your house. 

Study the literature of the manufacturers in this catalog 
to get an insight into modern equipment and how it works. 
Find out about the availability of fuel and service in jour 



neighborhood. Then go ahead with the best quality units 
which you can afford, and insure their efficiency by pro- 
viding insulation, weather stripping and double window 
glazing. 

Heating and air conditioning are highly technical sub- 
jects and the layout of the system should be left in the 
hands of a reliable expert who is familiar with all the engi- 
neering data, one who has had experience in the field and 
can properly design the kind of system best suited to your 
particular plan and type of house. Tell him what you want, 
he'll do the rest.

Electricity and lighting . . . 



1 he number and placement of electrical outlets is of the 
greatest importance. You will want a number of lamps and 
you will not want to live in a tangle of long electrical cords. 
Better to have too many convenience outlets than too few, 
you may want to change your furniture arrangements 
someday. If you are in doubt as to how you will arrange 
your furniture, put enough outlets on all walls so you can 
make shifts without sliding out of range of outlets, sources 
of light. 

Lighting itself has become an exact science in recent 
years, the emphasis not on increasing light intensity willy- 
nilly, but on achieving just the right amount and kind for 
each and every task or purpose. The elimination of trying 
glare has been studied as intensively as the amount of light 
sufficient to make the finest work no strain on your eyes. 

Causes of eye strain (which in turn leads to fatigue and 
all sorts of physical disorders) seem to be: insufficient light, 
glare, unduly sharp brightness contrasts. A spottily lighted 
room may be exciting to look at, but definitely dangerous 
for the eyes. Bright, individual lights should be no more 
than ten times as bright as the general, over-all room light. 
In other words, don't settle down under one reading lamp, 
at night, with the rest of the room in darkness. Supplement 
your local lighting with general illumination. 

Used in combination or separately, there are three kinds 
of lighting to be considered: 

Direct. This is concentrated illumination for reading, 
writing or delicate, exacting work, directed where you want 
it, usually from your shaded lamps. See that it supplies 
ample intensity for the job in hand without glare. 

Indirect, as the name implies, involves light thrown onto 
a large area, generally the ceiling, and reflected back from 



it, to spread diffused light throughout. It is provided by 
special fixtures, coves or reflectors. 

Semi-Indirect, Light is directed both upward and down, 
so that some is direct, some reflected. 

In addition to any scientific knowledge which you can 
bring to bear- in planning the lighting of your home, the 
main tool which you have is good common sense. It will 
tell you to see that stairs are well lighted, that hall lights 
are controlled by switches both upstairs and down, that 
you get soft general lighting in your dining room, that good 
direct lights are close to the chair where you will read or 
sew, that local lights illumine each kitchen task, and so on. 
And don't forget lights outside, either. 

And while you are thinking of where each lighting fixture 
or outlet should be in relation to each activity and piece 
of furniture in each room, be sure the wiring is adequate, 
yes generous, for both lighting and appliances and for 
power. Now is the time to provide at least cost the wiring 
outlets for all the labor-saving and convenience items that 
you will need and want —washer, ironer, radios, television, 
refrigerator, freezing unit, range, fans, motors, room heat- 
ers, and power for your oil burner or stoker and all the rest. 
This means plenty of outlets, properly arranged circuits 
and wire sizes large enough to carry the present and future 
loads. 

Switches should be located so you can reach them natu- 
rally as you enter or leave a room or space, lighting your 
way before you. A pilot light at the cellar switch will show 
you whether the light is on or off down there. And have 
one for the attic too. Be sure your circuit-breaker or fuse- 
box is in a handy location for you will want to be able to 
get at it in the dark if something goes wrong.

1. Continuous uniform lighting for any 
room may be secured by using fluores- 
cent incandescent or cold cathode tubu- 
lar lamps hidden in a cove or molding. 



2. Tubular lights behind a valence may 
be used to accent windows or objects. It 
is also an interesting way of providing 
general illumination. 



3. Built-in light panels around mirrors are 
always helpful. Such a unit as shown 
above might be installed in a bed room 
between two closets— over a vanity. 



Lawn and landscaping . . . 



^*w 



Like every other facility that goes to make up your new 
home, the lawn surrounding it should be planned now for 
its full enjoyment when it becomes a reality. 

Without a lawn even the best landscaping is meaning- 
less. Actually, the grass is an integral part of the landscap- 
ing, without which your home will look as naked as an 
unfurnished room. 

Perhaps the best way to lay plans for a dream lawn is 
to list certain considerations. This list, while not conclusive, 
will start you on the right track to a fine lawn with a 
minimum of lost motion and costly mistakes: 

1. Survey property to determine the amount of natural 
slope and to locate existing drainage facilities. 

2. Begin early to reserve topsoil of suitable quantity and 
quality. 

3. Save all topsoil before building excavation starts. 

4. Plan the preparation so that the actual seeding can be 
accomplished during the late summer or early fall season. 

5. Sow a quality seed mixture that has done well on other 
successful lawns in your locality and a mixture that is 
adapted to the area as far as direct sunshine or shade 
are concerned. 

6. Don't plant a new lawn on subsoil. 

7. Don't plant lawn seed without fertilizing the seed bed 

It is a truly rare occasion when a good lawn "happens" 
to result from a hasty, improperly executed and poorly 
timed planting. The outstanding lawns the country over 
are planned from the beginning. It makes little difference 
whether the lawn consists of acres of restful vistas or an 
outdoor carpet serving double for a croquet court in front 
of the barbecue furnace, planning its start will pay off well 
through many years of good, attractive service. 

From the moment you start considering your plans for 
a new home, you should be developing your landscaping 
ideas, too. Before you start construction of your home, there 
are many landscaping factors that should be considered in 
light of your lot and its characteristics, neighboring lots, 
sun and shade patterns, maintenance and family activities. 

Actually, there are three steps to be taken when it comes 
to landscaping. First, make your plans reflect the best pos- 
sible use of the land as far as practicality and beauty are 
concerned. Second, put your plan to work and shape the 
land by retaining natural advantages and constructing nec- 
essary walls, pathways and driveways. Finally, select the 
plants that will make your landscaping plans come to life. 

There are four general areas to think about— street, util- 
ity, garden and family areas. 

The approach to your house— the so-called street area- 
is the area the public sees first. When deciding upon plant- 
ings for this area, consider their attractiveness and the 
visibility they permit. 

You'll want plenty of outdoor living space if you're like 
most modern home-planners ! This is the private area which 
could very well include a porch or terrace and a play-yard. 
Plus plenty of space for outdoor living and sun-bathing! 



A garden area is a must for garden enthusiasts. No matter 
whether it's a flower or vegetable garden for you, chances 
are your garden will be a sun-worshiper— place your gar- 
den accordingly. And place your garden where the most 
people will enjoy it most of the time. 

Your service area should be close to the driveway and 
walks. Among the items you will want to consider for this 
part of your land are clothes drying and waste collecting 
facilities. 

There are so many trees, bushes, vines and perennials 
from which to choose! Better make certain you round up 
all the professional advice you can before you start planting. 

Briefly stated, there are certain fundamentals to follow 
in making a selection of plants: 

(a) Consider the outline of the plant— its size and shape 
and how fast it grows. 

(b) Consider the sun and the shade in the selected loca- 
tion. 

(c) Consider the plant's color and its flowers and fruit. 

(d) Consider the hardiness and permanence of the plant. 

(e) And consider the soil and moisture requirements.

TELEPHONES 

IN THE HOME YOU BUILD 



HI 




telephone planning fe ^ importm 



Naturally, you want your new home to be mod- 
ern in every respect — designed for comfort, con- 
venience and attractiveness. No doubt you have 
given a lot of thought to such essential services 
as electricity, gas and plumbing. You want them 
to be ample, of course, and you'll insist that the 
pipes and wires associated with these services 
be concealed within the walls. 



Don't overlook telephone wires 




Modern construction methods and materials make 
it difficult and, at times, impossible to properly 
conceal telephone wires once your new home is 
completed. Improved building techniques, the use 
of insulating materials in the walls, fire stops, 
stud bracing — these are barriers which block any 
attempt to run wires behind the scenes. So, un- 
less raceways are provided, the telephone in- 
staller has little choice— he must attach the wires 
along baseboards and around window and door 
frames where they can be seen. 



?lan now to conceal wires forevc 



Right now— while you are planning your home 
is the time to think about the telephone serv- 
ice you'll need. Once you decide where you want 
telephones, your builder or electrician can install 
the necessary outlets and provide raceways to 
carry the wires inside the walls of your house. 
Thus exposed wiring need never detract from the 
beauty of your walls and woodwork. 



What ate teleplione raceway? 



They are simply pipe lines which carry telephone 
wires inside the walls from the point where they 
enter your home to the places where you want 
your telephones. Ordinary pipe or thin-wail or 
flexible electrical conduit is frequently used. 
It provides a clear path in the walls through 
which the telephone installer can run his wires. 







How m»»y ouae,s win yo " atti f 




In deciding how many telephone outlets to install, 
consider future as well as present needs. As con- 
ditions change, as your family grows, your tele- 
phone requirements will increase. You may not 
want a telephone in your bedroom right now. 
But the time may come when you'll find a bed- 
side telephone very convenient. And so with 
other locations. To insure complete telephone 
convenience, provide enough outlets in the right 
places. The cost per outlet is small, and the years 
will prove the value of your investment. 



Suggested outlet locations 



Your telephone requirements will, of course, vary 
according to family circumstances and the layout 
of the home you build. However, experience has 
shown desirable locations to include (1) a central 
location accessible to the working area of your 
home— the kitchen, dining room, living room or 
hall if not too far from the kitchen door; (2) master 
bedroom either on first or second floor; (3) addi- 
tional bedrooms, den, study, sewing or game 
room or workshop. 







OUTLETS FOR PORTABLE TELEPHONES 

In many homes one or more portable telephones— telephones that can be carried from 
room to room and plugged into telephone outlets— are found to be worth-while time and 
step savers. You may not use such locations as the sewing room, guest room, workshop, 
or game room often enough to warrant installing a permanent telephone, but outlets for 
a portable telephone, available whenever needed, would prove a real convenience. 

REMEMBER THESE POINTS 

1. Plan now to conceal telephone wires in the home you build. 

2. Base your plans on future as well as present needs. 

3. Locate telephone outlets where they will be most easily accessible day and night. 

4. Consider, too, the use of portable telephones if you have rooms which will not be in 
continuous use.

WANT RELIEF from the straight 
lines of conventional mirrors? 
A beautiful circular mirror over 
make-up table or lavatory is re- 
freshingly decorative. 




YOUR BATHROOM will look 

smarter with sets of towel bars 
arranged this way on the walls. 
HIS and HERS . . . with pairs 
of Turkish and face towels. 




A BATHROOM littered with 
children's tub toys is a problem. 
Why not a recessed shelf over 
the bathtub? Handy — practical 
— economical. 




FOR THE WOMAN who has 

always dreamed of a "little 
private dressing room" ... a 
complete, custom-built, exotic- 
ally-styled mirror unit. Add in- 
direct lighting, colored side 
mirrors, recessed shelf — and 
presto! Simply install above a 
table, lavatory or in the powder 
room. 



> mmmmm 




WATER TUMBLERS, tooth- 

brushes, soap ... a combina- 
tion holder for each family 
member. Convenient! Sanitary! 



A MORE AMPLE towel supply for 
the entire family may be kept on 
chromium towel shelves "stacked" 
in this manner on bathroom walls 
. . . lending utility plus a brand new 
decorative effect! Here's a nice 
arrangement, with the youngster's 
holder lowermost!

Ceramo 

Ceramic Glazed Asbestos-Cement Siding 



Treat your home to sidewalls of snow-white CERAMO! It's 
the new asbestos-cement siding with a flint-hard ceramic 
surface— fused under high heat to seal out dirt, grime, 
moisture — stays clean longer! 

CERAMO is a whiter, brighter white. Scientific tests made 
under U. S. Bureau of Standards Methods prove that 
Ceramo is whiter than many white paints used for exterior 
of homes. Compare Ceramo White with ordinary white 
siding — you will be amazed! 

CERAMO protects against fire— made from non-combustible 
materials— asbestos-fiber and Portland cement. 

CERAMO will not rot or decay. 

CERAMO does not require painting. It saves you the first 
cost of painting and it continues to save you the cost of 
repainting. 

CERAMO is a modern material. It is suitable for all types 
of homes in all climates. 

CERAMO exterior walls will add permanent beauty and 
freshness to your home. 



Ceramo Asbestos-Cement siding 




Soot Test 

Soot and atmospheric dirt are 
easily washed off with water. 



Water does not penetrate 
CERAMO'S dense, hard surface. 



Even a blow torch can't ignite 
Carey CERAMO! 



Whiteness Test 

Ceramo is whiter than the whitest 
of outside white house paints.* 



* Light reflectivity tests recommended by U. S. Bureau of Standards rate CERAMO 90.7% (published figures rate lead-zinc White Paint, 2 coats 66%, Titanium Oxide White Paint 75%)

WW A ROCK WOOL BATT INSULATION 
THAT'S COMPLETELY FIRE SAFE! 

FIRE GUARD 



Only Rock Wool Batt in the World with a FIRE-RESISTANT Vapor Barrier! 

Carey FIRE-GUARD Batts give you more than insulation ever did before! 
No other insulating material of any kind provides all these important benefits: 

• Maximum fire-safety for your home and family 

• Lower heating costs— fuel savings up to 40% 

• More comfortable living the year 'round 

• Maximum protection against destructive moisture 



Carey Fire-Guard Rock Wool Batts feature

combustible rock wool batts are furnished 
with a paper vapor barrier . . . literally 
invite the spread of flames, should fire 
occur. Only Carey gives you Fire-Guard 
. . . the extra protection of a vapor barrier 
that will not burn combined with non- 
combustible rock wool. 




Dent Line Your New Home With Paper! Try Th|$ Test Yo(lrse|# ,

barriers burst into flame, actually feed 
the blaze and encourage its spread. This 
often results in tragic loss! 





Insulate with Carey Fire-Guard Rock 
Wool Batts with exclusive Fire-Resistant 
vapor barrier awarded the highest fire- 
safety rating— Underwriters' Laborator- 
ies, Inc. label ! Look for it on the package 
when you buy rock wool batt insulation! 



Eliminate this unnecessary risk! Insulate 
with Carey Fire-Guard Rock Wool Batts 
with exclusive Fire-Resistant vapor bar- 
rier that retards flame spread, helps keep 
fire in check until help arrives! 



Hold a cigarette lighter flame against 
Fire-Guard vapor ^barrier. There will be 
no ignition of vapor barrier, nothing to 
cause flame spread. 

Next try it on an ordinary vapor barrier. 
In a few seconds vapor barrier will be 
burning merrily. Keep this dangerous 
fire hazard out of your new home!

the importance of the 





Comfort and convenience are first considerations in 
the design of all Crane plumbing fixtures. But fix- 
tures alone represent only part of a complete and 
working plumbing system. 

Beneath the floor and behind the walls are the vital 
supply lines — the piping that brings fresh, clear 
water; the piping that carries away disease-breeding 
wastes. Because so much depends upon these hidden, 
but important supply lines, it is essential that the 
materials and installations be of the highest quality.

Crane dealer 



Whether you plan to build or are merely replacing 
a single out-moded plumbing fixture, it will pay you 
to depend upon the Crane Dealer. His knowledge 
and skill in piping, plus the high quality Crane 
piping materials he uses, are your assurance of years 
of satisfactory, trouble-free service.

Crane colored fixtures

Crane kitchen sinks are available in white and eight attrac- 
tive pastel colors which permit a wide variety of decorative 
schemes. These colors are Sun Tan, French Grey, Persian Red, 
Citrus Yellow, Pale Jade, India Ivory, Sky Blue and Shell 
Pink. All Crane colors possess a uniform quality and bril- 
liance because they are fused into the smooth glaze of the 
fixtures and there is no possibility of fading. 






Crane equipment for your 

bathroom 



^r 



The same high quality and styling that char- 
acterize Crane kitchen fixtures are available 
in bathroom fixtures. The Crane line includes 
a wide choice of matched groups and indi- 
vidual fixtures to meet every need and every budget. 
Crane also offers a complete slection of bathroom 
accessories. 



Don't settle for anything less than a Crane Prefen 
kitchen — a modern, step-saving kitchen centei 
around a sparkling Crane quality sink. Here's why 

Crane sinks are of one-piece cast iron construed 
with glistening acid-resisting porcelain ename 
finish that means lasting beauty. Corners are smoo 
ly rounded, and there are no cracks or crevices 
harbor dirt. To clean, you merely wipe with a dai 
cloth. 

Recessed drainboards keep water from surging o 
the rim, and there is a convenient ledge for glas 
or other kitchen equipment. A four-inch back p 
tects the wall — permits a neater installation urn 
low windows. 

And the most beautiful cabinets you've ever seen 
made of glistening enameled steel with special 1 
tures and the very best of accessories. 

Furthermore, you'll find the Crane Dealer has ev< 
thing you need to make the kitchen a mode 
efficient work center — ranges, garbage dispos 
ventilating fans, water heaters and water treat 
equipment — even glistening white laundry trays 
the combination kitchen-laundry room. His exj: 
installation assures lasting service and satisfacti 

MBetuxe features 

are regular equipment 



Diai-ese controls— one of the biggest 
convenience features of all Crane 
sinks. This exclusive Crane engineer- 
ing advancement lets you turn faucets 
on and off with finger-tip pressure. 
But most important because Dial-e$e 
faucets operate so easily, wear and 
consequent dripping are reduced. 

Handy Hose spray is another extra 
that really saves time. Has many 
uses in the preparation of food and 
in dishwashing. Just pull it out, 
press the thumb-action control, and 
there's water where you want it. 

Basins of all Crane sinks are equip- 
ped with patented Recepfol wastes 
which have large cup strainers that 
are easily removed and emptied. A 
twist and the ftecepfof waste is back 
in position.

built-in sinks and counter-tops t 



If your plans call for a continuous counter-top 
kitchen arrangement, you can have a Crane sink 
and counter-top combination built to your specifi- 
cations. Shown here is everything you need to make 
a counter- top kitchen of convenience and beauty. 




THE SINK — Crane offers a wide selection of flat 
rim sinks designed especially for installation in your 
choice of counter-top. These modern flat rim sinks 
are all Crane quality, made of finest materials with 
such exclusive features as Dial-ese controls and 
Receptol wastes. Available in single and double- 
basin models. 

THE COUNTER-TOPS — Counter-tops are also avail- 
able from Crane, custom built to your specifications 
whether straight, L-shaped or U-shaped, with or 
without back splash. The selection of color and 
material is complete. Choose linoleum, plastic, stain- 
less steel, or maple. 

THE UNDER-SINK CABINET — Under sink cabinets 
used in conjunction with counter- tops are regulars 
from the Crane line. You need only choose the under- 
sink cabinet you desire. Double-basin sinks, oi 
course, require a double-basin size cabinet. 

BASE CABINETS — The modern base cabinets shown 
in these typical arrangements are designed especially 
to allow flexible arrangements. They may be arrang- 
ed to create the effect and convenience you desire, 



Here is a fine example of the utility possible in a custom 
counter-top arrangement. In this attractive layout, the 
All-American double-basin sink is shown with an under-sink 
cabinet. Matching base cabinets flank the under-sink cabinet, 
and the entire grouping becomes a built-in unit with a 
continuous counter-top. The U-shaped grouping shown is 
only one of the attractive arrangements possible with a Crane 
built-in sink, matching cabinets and a custom counter-top.

Here is the answer to your kitchen storage problems 
— sparkling new Crane-Line cabinets to make any 
kitchen a model of efficiency and utility. They are 
functional in design and possess construction features 
not found in ordinary cabinets. Both wall and base 
models are made of highest quality steel, bonderized 
for corrosion resistance, and have a durable, sanitary 
and lustrous baked white enamel finish that is easy 
to keep clean and bright. Attractive, well-rounded 
edges minimize chipping of enamel. Note, too, the 
manner in which cabinets may be placed side by side 
without filler strips. This is possible because all 
doors open to 90° — the face of the door does not 
extend beyond the side of the cabinet. In fact, the 
many models and sizes of Crane Line wall and base 
cabinets permit you to arrange them any way you 
may desire. 






Easy-acting, double-faced drawers White baked enameled steel shelves All Crane-Line wall cabinets are

a material that is also rust resis- 
tant. Rubber bumpers minimize

Here is home heating at its best, bringing sunny, 
radiant warmth and a new outlook on room plan- 
ning. Inconspicuous, easy to install in new homes 
or old, Crane Baseboard Heating Panels merely 
take the place of conventional baseboards. Rooms 
seem larger, more livable, and furniture may be 
arranged any way you desire. 

But most important, Crane Radiant Baseboard 
Panels bring a new heating comfort — a healthful, 
radiant warmth that reaches every corner of the 
room evenly with no "cold spots." Actually, the 
difference in air temperature is only two or three 
degrees, even in coldest weather. Note, too, how 
Crane Radiant Panels may be used at ceiling leveL 
Type "R" Panels are made in 2-foot sections; 
Type "RC" in 1- or 2 -foot sections. When Crane

modern AZeC^Oft^ka radiation 



Crane Compac Radiators solve many heating 
problems. Compactly styled and thoroughly mod- 
ern in appearance, they require minimum floor 
space with no sacrifice in heat output. They may 
be installed as free-standing units or may be 
recessed into walls if desired. 

The design of Crane Compac Radiators also makes 
them extremely efficient. Despite their, slim de- 
sign, they represent no sacrifice of heating surface 
or heating capacity. The diameter of their cross- 
sections, the thickness of walls, the ratio of water 
content to the heating surface, the number of 
tubes per square foot of floor space . . . make these 
radiators as effective as they are beautiful. 

Compac Radiators are ideal for new construction 
or for remodeling. They may replace old-fashioned 
radiators with little or no change of piping. They 
are built in sizes to suit every need — in 3, 4, 5, 
and 6-tube types of 6 to 56 sections, delivered in 
even numbers of sections only. Heights from 19 
to 32 inches. 



BETTER DESIGN. More beauty, 
full efficiency. Thin walls, 
properly proportioned areas 
... all mean the maximum 
radiation of heat from the 
hot water or steam circulat- 
ing inside the radiator. 




EASIER TO CLEAN. 

Compac Radiators are de- 
signed with the housewife's 
cleaning problems in mind 
—no dirt-trapping grooves. 
All surfaces are easily 
accessible to cleaning cloth 
or brush. 




ATTRACTIVE APPEARANCE. 
Ideal for new homes or for 
modernization. The modern, 
slender design of Compac 
Radiators makes them particu- 
larly suitable where space is 
the big problem.

the ideal heating system for small honu 



the Crane 



Here is the Crane 14 Boiler — an efficient, com- 
pact heating unit for small homes. It is designed 
for steam or hot water heating, and may be easily 
converted from a hand-fired coal or coke boiler 




to a fully automatic gas or oil-fired unit, capabl< 
of producing economical, clean, even heat. 

The Crane 14 Boiler is of wet base construction 
with a completely water jacketed combustioi 
chamber. The water circulates not only above th< 
combustion chamber but on both sides and below 
making maximum use of every particle of hea 
developed. This type of construction permits th 
Crane 14 Boiler to be placed on a wood floor witl 
no special insulation needed. And because of th 
low return connection, installation of a gravir 
hot water system with the boiler on the first floo 
is practical — basement installation is not required 

Furthermore, should the home be enlarged, yoi 
can increase the capacity of the Crane 14 Boile 
if necessary, simply by adding sections. 

Size: 21 V4" wide x 54V4" high x 15 5 / 8 " to 27« 
long, depending upon number of section! 

Net output rating: Steam — 64,000 to 119,00 
b.t.u.; Water — 74,000 to 135,000 b.t.u. 

oil fired 14 

When oil-fired and equipped with the deluxe en 
tended jacket shown in the cut-away, the Crane 1 
Boiler becomes an attractive addition to any utilit 
or recreation room. If desired, an internal tank o 
tankless water heater may be installed. 



coal fired 14 



Here is how the Crane 14 
Boiler looks when installed 
for the hand firing of coal. 
It will provide efficient, low- 
cost heating and is easily 
converted to automatic oil 
or gas-firing.

If gas is preferred, the Crane

the famous Roberts-Gordon 
Spreader- flame burner. Rec-

a completely ^packaged" heating unit 



The Crane 16 Boiler is a "packaged" unit com- 
bining both boiler and burner — the whole unit 
designed for the most efficient burning of oil. 
Compact in size and attractive in appearance, the 
Crane 16 is at home in the most modern basement 







or utility room. Completely versatile, the Crane 
16 is suited to homes of every design, including 
ranch- type dwellings where a low chimney is 
desired. 

The boiler incorporates the exclusive Sustained 
Heat Principle and Controlled Water Travel which 
extract maximum heat from the fuel consumed. 
Heavy cast iron construction with precision-fitted 
sections assures long life and safe operation. Gases, 
soot and dirt cannot escape into the home. Sec- 
tional design also permits future expansion of the 
boiler should the home be enlarged. The pre-cast 
combustion chamber of factory molded refractory 
is scientifically shaped to assure maximum effi- 
ciency from the burner flame. 

The Crane-Line Conservoil Burner is specially 
engineered for the 16, and burner controls are 
conveniently located in the front of the boiler. 
The entire unit is enclosed in an attractive heavy 
steel jacket finished in green baked-on enamel. 
Thick air cell asbestos insulation minimizes heat 
loss. Trombone tank type water heater or standard 
tankless water heater optional. 

Size: 31" wide x 561/4" high x 473/ 8 " to 63%" 
long, depending upon number of sections. 

Net output ratings: Steam — 110,000 to 216,000 
b.t.u.; Water— 126,000 to 239,000 b.t.u. 



advantages of ^floating flame 



33 



The Crane-Line Conservoil Burner is specially engineered for the 
Crane 16 Boiler. It is quiet, completely automatic, and features a 
"floating flame" which burns entirely in suspension, thus enabling 
the boiler surfaces to absorb maximum heat. The efficient design 
and simplified construction of this burner also permit the burning 
of even cheaper grades of fuel oil without the usual waste or 
unpleasant odors. The burner is located inside the handsome steel 
jacket, yet is easily accessible at all times.

convertible boiler for steam 
or hot water heating 



The Crane 20 is an efficient boiler that will give 
trouble-free service whether coal, coke, oil or gas 
is burned. The attractive design of the 20 Boiler 
makes it ideal for the modern basement or recrea- 




tion room. The jacket is of steel with a heavy coat 
of green enamel baked on. Doors have black-satin 
finish. The non-heat handles remain cool to the 
touch. 

Maximum heat absorption and economical use of 
fuel are assured in the Crane 20 Boiler by its mul- 
tiple flue construction which provides more ceil- 
ing heating surface directly over the flame. The 
patented Controlled Water Travel which directs 
the water over the hottest heating surfaces scrubs 
away the insulating film of sluggish water that 
would otherwise reduce efficiency. 

The Crane 20 is suitable for hand, stoker or oil 
firing. It may easily be converted from hand to 
automatic firing after installation, if desired. The 
cutaway at right shows the Crane 20 as an auto- 
matic oil-fired unit, and features the efficient 
Crane-Line Conservoil oil Burner. And like all 
Crane cast iron sectional boilers, the Crane 20 
may be enlarged at any time to meet increased 
heating demands. 

The Crane 20 Boiler can be furnished with a 
trombone type or built-in tankless type domestic 
water heater when so specified. 

Size: 27" wide x 56" high x 21%" to 45 7 /s" long, 
depending upon number of sections. 

Net output ratings: Steam — 79,000 to 185,000 
b.t.u.; Water — 92,000 to Z06,000 b.t.u. 



ffas fired 

In localities where 
gas is available for 
heating, the Crane 
20 Boiler may be 
had with the 
famous Roberts- 
Gordon gas burn- 
er, resulting in a 
fully automatic, 
carefree unit.

When installed 
for manual oper- 
ation, the Crane 
20 Boiler will also

efficient and eco- 
nomical unit to op- 
erate. Easily con- 
verted to oil, gas, 
or stoker firing.

If you prefer gas and it is available in your com- 
munity, you will find this gas burner highly 
efficient and economical to operate. It is easily 
installed in conjunction with a new heating sys- 
tem, or may be installed in an existing furnace 
or boiler. 

The Spreader Flame principle of combustion is an 
exclusive feature that offers important advantages. 
It assures highest combustion efficiency, prevents 
overheating of the ash pit where heat is lost, and 
utilizes every inch of the heating surface. The 
result is instant and ample heat from the moment 
the burner goes on. This silent flame exercises 
the three principles of heat application — radia- 
tion, conduction and convection. 

The Gordon Telescoping Mixer is easily adjusted 
for large or small furnaces, and the unit can be 
moved from one residence to another. 

All safety features are incorporated in the design 
of this rugged gas burner available from the 
Crane Dealer. Burns natural or artificial gases.

be sure the piping 
is Crane 



Perhaps you never thought about it, but piping 
plays a mighty important part in the long life and 
satisfactory service your heating system renders. 

The globe, gate, or check valves, the tees, elbows 
and nipples, the unions and flanges, while repre- 
senting only a small part of the cost of a complete 
system, actually assure you a heating system that 
is uniformly dependable and long-lived through- 
out. It is essential, of course, that the piping be 
installed by one who has a thorough knowledge 
of proper layout. Such a man is the Crane Heating 
Dealer. 

The high standard of quality, which is an inte- 
gral part of all Crane piping materials, plus expert 
installation by the Crane Heating Dealer, will 
free you from petty annoyances that frequent 
repairs and maintenance trouble cause. 

In checking the details on your heating system, be 
sure to consider every phase down to the piping 
itself.

Mother had a tough week. Dad no sooner started the car for their 

Sunday afternoon ride than she fell asleep. 

In her dreams, the car pulled up in front of a model house. 

"Where are weV % she asked. 

"This," said her dream tour guide, "is a home where Beauty Bonded 

Formica makes living more enjoyable for everybody in the family." 

"Formica?" she questioned. "What is this Formica 2 ." 

"Formica," her guide replied, "is a tough, colorful plastic 
laminate. It is the ideal surfacing material. Here, for example, in 
the living room, you'll find it on the top surface of the writing 
desk, the coffee and occasional tables, and the entire mantelpiece." 

"Why?" Mother asked. 

"The obvious reasons are Formica's great beauty and color possibilities. But here are other advantages every bit as 

important : Formica never needs to be painted or re- 
finished. It is unharmed by spilled drinks. Its smooth, 
hard surface cleans with a damp cloth. Treatment 
that would scratch or mar most surfaces never fazes 
Formica. You know Formica is the material that 
has been used on many beautiful 
bar tops and restaurant table tops 
for more than a quarter of a century . 



"In the bedroom, too, the furniture 
tops are all Formica. Here, as in 
the living room, it looks just like 
any fine wood, but it has all the 
plus features of this amazing ma- 
terial. Night tables and dresser 
tops never need protective glass 
plates. 





|f course y the kitchen is probably the place where Formica 
ts its toughest workout. Formica's resistance to boiling 
iter, fruit acids and cleaning alkalies makes it ideal for 
ur work surfaces on cabinet tops and around the sink. It 
Lkes excellent wall panels, too. The window sill is an- 
ler example of how Formica combines beauty with 
ility. And let's not overlook the built-in Formica dinette 
)le ... so practical, so colorful, so easy to clean and 
:p clean! 





1 Now for the bathroom," said the guide, opening an- 
other door. ' 'That cheerful unit with the wash basin 
is a Formica Vanitory. It offers the biggest improve- 
ment in design and beauty since bathrooms moved in- 
doors. A colorful vanity and lavatory, all in one com- 
pact unit. And the walls are Formica, 
too — Formica Beautyboard!" 




hen Dad pulled up gently to the curb in front of the old 
lomestead, Mother was still sleeping soundly. But dreams 
that make as much sense as this one have a way of coming 
true. Drop in to see your Formica fabricator. You'll meet, 
face to face, the man who can make 
your dreams come true with Beauty 
Bonded Formica!

How shall we heat our new home? 

Condensed basic information to help you choose the right heating equipment. 



f> 



WHICH FUEL? 

GAS is a very clean and simple fuel. Be sure to 
get an up-to-date cost estimate for your home from 
your G-E Home Heating Dealer or your Gas 
Company. 

general electric makes gas warm-air furnaces and 
boilers. Both are famous for clean, quiet operation 
—high efficiency, quick heat. 



OIL is popular and dependable. An efficient 
oil heating unit is your best assurance of minimum 
oil bills. Your G-E Home Heating Dealer will 
gladly survey your home and submit a proposal 
showing estimated fuel savings with G-E. 

g-e oil furnaces and boilers are designed for real 
heating comfort and long, trouble-free life at 
lowest operating cost. It's not the first cost — it's 
the fuel cost that's important. Ask about the bene- 
fits of the fuel-saving G-E "Turn-Back Flame." 



WHICH HEATING SYSTEM . . . AND TYPE OF HEAT DISTRIBUTION? 



FORCED WARM AlR HEAT has many advantages. In G-E 
Gas or Oil Furnaces, air is warmed, filtered, humidified, 
circulated. Filtered air means cleaner air, easier house- 
keeping. Humidified air is more healthful and comfortable. 
Circulated air keeps room temperatures more uniform 
during winter, adds comfort in summer, too. 

G-E Oil or Gas Warm Air Furnaces take up little 
space, make extra room. No basement needed — -tuck 
away in alcoves or utility rooms. These G-E designed — 
G-E assembled— G-E tested units offer maximum heating 
comfort at lowest fuel costs. 



CONVENTIONAL REGISTER — for warm air 
heating systems. Furnace delivers and cir- 
culates warmed air through room registers. 
Air is returned to furnace through grilles. 



G-E AIR-WALL HEATING... Forced Warm Air plus Radiant Heat! 

May be installed with G-E Oil or Gas Warm Air Fur- 
naces — offers superior performance over 
conventional systems. Air -Wall registers 
direct warm air up over cold outer walls 
— warming them so they actually 
radiate heat. Described in detail on the 
next two pages. 




<3 

HP* 




STEAM, VAPOR, OR HOT WATER HEAT is installed as either 
a one-pipe or two-pipe system. The latter costs more for 
installation, but is usually considered worth it because of 
better control and faster delivery of heat. 

G-E OIL OR GAS BOILERS offer unique advantages for 
"wet" systems. Extremely fast heat transfer from flames 
to water. G-E design permits efficient operation with 
small water content — no long waits for comfort while 
needless extra gallons soak up heat. G-E Oil Boilers pro- 
vide year 'round supply of domestic hot water. 



RADIATOR — for steam, vapor, or hot water 
systems — delivers warmth by radiation, like 
the sun — can be recessed into walls. 

CON VECTOR — for steam, vapor, or hot water 
heating — thin metal fins transfer heat from 
pipe to air~air is drawn in bottom, passed 
out top. Can be recessed into walls. 

RADIANT PANEL — for hot water heating — 
coils of pipe or tubing imbedded in floors, 
ceilings, or walls. Radiant principle allows 
lower air temperatures. 

BASEBOARD— -for hot water heating — radia- 
tors in form of metal baseboards installed 
along bottom of walls — very uniform heating.

A^ 




combining: 

• G-E Oil or Gas Warm Air Furnace 

• Small diameter, low cost, 
easily installed, round ducts 

• G-E Air-Wall Registers 

Here is an advanced scientific method of 
distributing heat from a warm air 
furnace, employing small-size ducts that 
are easy to install and a completely 
new type of register. A product of G-E 
research and engineering, the new 
G-E Air-Wall Registers direct the warm air 
up and out in front of the wall in a fan-like 
pattern . . . warming the cold surface. 
No worry about furniture placement, no 
blasts of hot air into the center of the 
room. Balanced heat in every room with 
comfortable floor- to-ceiling temperatures. 
Conveniently located, return air grilles 
provide for proper air circulation. 



TWO TYPES OF HEAT IN 



Notice the pattern of heated air from 
the unique G-E register. It blankets the 
cold walls of the rooms in your house 
with warm air, so they actually radiate 
heat, thus providing warm air heat 
and radiant heat in one system. 




ONLY G.E. 



offers such a completely engineered heating system* From thermostat 



to furnace to registers— every part a smoothly working member of the whole! 



FKEDOM OF FURNITURE 
PLACEMENT 

You can place your easy chair 
directly in front of the G-E 
Air -Wall Register and feel no 
draft ... no uacom fort able 
hot blasts ... no blasts of cold 
air when the fan starts. 



'ft^^ 






QUIET* 

Small Air- Wall ducts dampen 
furnace noise more readily 
than large ducts. G-E Air- 
Wall Register design with in- 
sulated damper gives quieter 
air circulation. 



BALANCED HEAT FLOW 
TO ALL ROOMS 

You can accurately adjust 
heat flow to each room in your 
home by simple adjustment of 
the damper on each duct, with 
minimum disturbance to the 
"balance" of heat to- other 
rooms. 





BEAUTY FOR YOUR HOME 

G-E furnaces are compact and 
handsome. Air- Wall ducts are 
small and neat. Air -Wall op- 
erates with the G-E Warm Air 
Furnace — oil or gas. Ideally 
suited to every type of home 
— with or without basement. 



COMFORTABLE FLOOR-TO-

The wall of warmed air dif- 
fuses quickly throughout the 
room to give uniform tempera- 
tures. Warmer floors, too! 




G-E Standard ^1/yJWJZliJ Registers 



Attractively designed for any 
room, these registers cause 
the heat to flow up and out in

through the house. 



DtgVg G.E. BURNS ALL 
^JSl THE OIL! The fa 
I mous G-E low- 
pressure "Atom- 
izer" method of 
burning oil is used. 
Every drop is shat- 
tered into millions of particles, 
which are mixed with air. Addi- 
tional air is brought into the com- 
bustion chamber, causing the oil 
to burn completely. 




J 



G-E "TURN-BACK 

FLAME" gives the 
greatest amount 
of heat for every 
drop of oil burned. 



QUICK HEAT! The 

G-E heat transfer 
element is made of 
rugged steel with 
external finned 
surfaces for high

QUICK, QUIET... ECONOMICAL GAS HEAT 

The new General Electric Gas Boiler comfort-conditions your home 
. . . gives you clean, trouble-free heat . . . maximum heating value from 
the gas flame. The design is based on the famous G-E philosophy— 
* Tarts of a machine that are to work together must be designed to 
work together". 



Here's how the efficient 

G-E Gas Boiler 
provides the most heat 
...at rock bottom cost 



QUICK HEAT! 

Note the design 
of the highly 
efficient heat 
transfer unit. 
Unique, water- 
filled, diamond- 
shaped projec- 
tions on the cast- 
iron boiler sec- 
tions, over which 
the hot gases 
pass, break up the flow of these gases 
and give them a turbulence. This 
results in faster heat absorption, heat 
transfer which means faster delivery 
to the rooms of your home. 



QUIET HEAT 
THAT'S CLEAN! 

All burners in 
the G-E Gas 
Boiler are de- 
signed and sized 
to burn com- 
pletely the spe- 
cific type of gas 
used in your 
area. That means 
you get even, 
smooth ignition and quiet-burning 
flames. Careful attention to gas com- 
bustion design details throughout the 
boiler maintains the inherent cleanli- 
ness of gas as a fuel. 






Here are additional 

features 

for your heating 

satisfaction 



DECORATOR STYLED! 

Why have an old- 
fashioned, fuel-greedy 
boiler when you can 
own a compact , 
smartly styled G-E 
Gas Boiler. Its clean, 
blue-grey finish 
blends with any 
decorative scheme . . . 
helps you change your 
" cellar" into an attractive basement 
room. Easy to keep clean, too. Just 
wipe with a damp rag as you would 
your refrigerator. 



TROUBLE-FREE! Many case histories on 
file back the reputation of the G-E 
Gas Boiler for reliability. They show 
years of continuous, trouble-free 
operation. Here is a unit that assures 
you of clean, comfortable, even, auto- 
matic heat! 



ECONOMICAL! Low cost operation is 
the result of careful selection of 
materials and coordination of design. 
G-E research engineers have devel- 
oped a complete, efficient heating unit 
which gets full value from the gas 
fuel. The G-E Gas Boiler with its 
minimum water content provides fast 
heat, means lower fuel bills!

Why G-E Oil Boiler 
saves you money- 
gives more comfort 







w 



G.E. BURNS ALL THE OIL! 

The G-E non-clog burner 
nozzle mixes oil and air, 
then atomizes the oil bub- 
bles into millions of quick- 
flaring particles, which 
burn completely. 

G-E "TURN- BACK FLAME" 
gives more heat, clean heat! 
The down-burning flame 
turns back on itself, and 
you get long 2 -way flame 
travel . . . with the great- 
est amount of heat. Flame 
burns clean because it 
burns all the oil, 

QUICK HEAT! G-E steel 
combustion chamber 
walls permit rapid trans- 
fer of heat from flame to 
water and extract all pos- 
sible heat from fast-burn- 
ing oil, quickly! In the G-E 
Oil Boiler there are no un- 
needed, extra gallons of 
water to soak up heat. 

G-E "HEAT TRAP" DESIGN 
SAVES FUEL! Scientifically 
designed flue passage is at 
bottom, so less heat is lost 
up chimney. Heat con- 
tinues longer during shut- 
down periods, too!

your New Home 



N< 






r>i p 



I OW, while you're planning your new home, 
is the time to include modern lighting that will 
give you added comfort, eyesight protection 
and labor saving as well as a dramatic charm 
and bright loveliness to the home. You'll 
eventually want light conditioning ... so 
arrange for it now when it's much less trouble 
and expense than after the house is built. 

It's very simple to light condition your new 
home. The following pages offer a series of 
tested recipes that show you and your builder 
exactly how to do it. 

Recipes Fit Any Home 

Twenty-four easy-to-follow recipes, for every 
seeing situation, are listed. They fit any home, 
regardless of style or size. Each recipe is 
based on careful scientific research on the 
physical positions and lighting needs for the 
various situations. All technical data has been 
eliminated to make it easy to use the recipes. 

Two kinds of lighting are needed in any room 
. . . specific light on the seeing task and general 
room lighting. General room lighting protects 
against eyestrain caused by brightness contrasts 
between light and darker areas. 

To enjoy the amazing advantages of better 
living with light ... to make your new home 
as cheerful, as gay as outdoors . . . follow the 
recipe directions carefully. Each measurement 
must be exact to get the right amount of lighting 
for each situation. All you need is a tape 
measure. 

Built-in Lighting Conies First 

First, you'll want to go over the built-in 
lighting features with your builder. These 
include the living room and dining room 



valances, the kitchen, bathroom, laundry and 
work bench fixtures. 

Then you'll want to study the requirements 
for portable lamps for each appropriate home 
situation. 

Better, safer, more pleasant living with light 
is yours ... at so little trouble and expense . . . 
you'll be forever happy you installed it as your 
new home was built. 



WIRE RIGHT NOW!

of General Electric Company Lamp Division at Nela Park, Cleveland, Ohio. 




See how bright and livable light conditioning makes this living room . . . how cheerful and pleasant the 
kitchen. Light conditioning means the right fixtures and portable lamps ... in the right place ... to give you 
comfort, eyesight protection and labor saving.

WALL VALANCE 



General Room Lighting 

This drawing shows you the newest, most 
interesting and effective way to get dramatic 
general lighting in your living room. It's the 
wall-to-wall valance. You will want to use 
portable lamps, too, but this built-in valance 
gives you 

a. The newest style in home lighting. 

b. Dramatic general room lighting. 

c. An appearance of more space. 

d. Color and pattern of draperies, wall 
paper, etc., are high-lighted. 

e. An enlivened, glamorous atmosphere. 

f. Light reflections from wall and ceiling 
supplement light from other sources — 
provide greater visual comfort. 

What To Use: 

A minimum of 16 feet of valance, preferably 
across one entire wall. Behind the valance, 
which may be as deep as 10 inches, use 20, 
25 or 40-watt fluorescent tubes end-to-end 
to fit length. Lumiline lamps, 40 or 60-watt, 
may be used instead of fluorescent. 

Wall valance may be in two or more segments, 
none less than 4 feet. 

Where To Place: 

Valance is placed across outside wall (over 
doors and windows). The distance from the 
top of the valance to the ceiling should not 
be materially less than 10 inches. 



Television Viewing 

Here is a view from the opposite side of the 
living room above. 

How You Benefit: 

a. Use of good lighting avoids eyestrain 
caused by the strong contrast between 
the bright television tube and dark 
surrounding areas. 

b. Programs enjoyment is greater because 
of less eyestrain and fatigue. 

c. You won't bump into and* fall over 
furniture when you move about. 

What To Use: 

Floor or table lamps normally in the room. 

Where To Place: 

It is important to maintain balanced lighting 
in the room. This is done by using wall-to-wall 
valance, floor and table lamps placed so direct 
light does not fall on tube.

DINING ALCOVE 




CEILING FIXTURE 
WALL VALANCE 



L 



How You Benefit: 

Illustrated here and recommended for dining 
alcoves is the flexible combination of a center 
ceiling fixture and lighted wall valance — 
both built-in features. The combination gives: 

a. Sparkle on the table and soft relaxing 
room lighting. 

b. A choice of lighting effects to fit the 
occasion, mood or menu. 

c. Dining alcove complements and extends 
living room. 

d. Wall valance adds pleasing atmosphere 
and highlights the picture. 

e. Allows use of table for games, pattern 
cutting, etc. 

What To Use: 

Ceiling Fixture — it may be close-to-ceiling 
or suspended type. Use four 60- watt or five 
40-watt bulbs in the upper part, and one 



75-watt R-30 bulb for direct down light on 
table. Switch control to obtain either or 
both effects. 

Wall Valance — Similar to wall valance in 
living room, but not across entire wall. It 
should be at least 35 inches long. Use fluores- 
cent tube, at least one 25-watt, or lumiline 
four 40- watts. 

Where To Place: 

Ceiling fixture above table. Valance on wall 
opposite living room valance unit. It may be 
placed on another wall or over window.

KITCHEN-LAUNDRY PLANNING 

IS MADE EASIER WITH 

GENERAL ELECTRIC WORK CENTERS 

Everybody wants a really modern all- 
electric kitchen and laundry. And every- 
body wants the nicest-looking, most 
dependable appliances they can buy. 

The mistake that many home planners 
make, however, is to think that an at- 
tractive refrigerator, range, and cabinets 
make an aW-electric kitchen. 

They don't. 

The real electric kitchen is basically a 
workroom — planned to simplify kitchen 
duties and shorten working hours. It is 
a room designed primarily for use, where 
electricity takes over the difficult, un- 
pleasant parts of housekeeping. Its size 
will depend upon the size of your family, 
or the amount of entertaining you do. 

But most important — the all-electric 
kitchen is planned around "work centers." 

These are the Cooking Center, the 
Dishwashing Center, and the Food Stor- 
age Center. In the all-electric laundry, 
these work centers are the Washing 
Center, the Drying Center, and the 
Ironing Center. 

If your kitchen or laundry is planned 
about these basic work centers, its size 
or shape will not affect its efficiency — but 
it will provide a step-saving room in 
which it is a joy to work and live. 

For complete information on planning 
efficient work centers, see your local 
General Electric retailer, or write to 
the Home Bureau, General Electric 
Company, Bridgeport 2, Connecticut.

GENERAL® ELECTRIC 



When you consider the following advantages, we think you will agree that the General Electric Food 
Freezer is your best investment: 



CONVENIENCE! No more shopping at crowded food counters. No 
more rushing out into the rain or snow to "pick up something to eat!" 
Your G-E Freezer is a store that never closes, right in your kitchen 
... all kinds of food at your finger tips, any day of the year! 












ECONOMY! Your General Electric Food Freezer enables you to buy 
in quantity— and at quantity prices. Buy at peak season when 
quality is best and prices are lowest. You'll be surprised how savings 
will mount up, and will help pay for the freezer itself! 

DEPENDABILITY! Has the same type of sealed-in refrigerating system 
that's proved so dependable in G-E Refrigerators. Over 2,700,000 
of these systems have been given economical service in G-E Refrig- 
erators for ten years or longer! And you get "Perfect Seal" cabinet 
construction, too! You get zero temperature throughout! 






r~: 



Push a button — there's one for each heat 
— gives the exact heat you want. Easy 
to see . . . easy to use. No need to stop 
if you happen to be stirring something. 
Gives you ease in cooking you never 
knew before. 



Built-in Pressure Cooker saves up to % 
cooking time, has safety-type, easy- 
lifting lid. Also equipped with 
nonpressure top, for deep -well -cooker 
meals. Deep-well Calrod* heating unit 
can be raised, to give you a fourth sur- 
face unit. *Reg. U. S. Pat. Off. 



iu^1^afltu4i4^utKHfl ! 



Wonderful meals . . . Superfast units . . . Shining 
cleanliness . . . Tried-and-true safety! 





Tripl-Oven that s really huge. Three in 
one! Master Oven can hold 30-lb tur- 
key. Or can be adjusted into a smaller 
Speed Oven, that heats faster than any 
other conventional range oven ! Conven- 
ient waist-high broiler, too ! 




CONVENIENCE ! G-E "Speed Cooking" is easy— 
so easy you'll never, never want to go back to 
old-fashioned cooking methods again! Whatever feature 
you consider — General Electric beauty, fast Calrod heat- 
ing units, cleanliness, or Automatic Oven Timer— you'll 
soon realize that convenience means that your work can be 
done quicker, better— and leave lots of spare time for other 
housework. 




ECONOMY ! General Electric Ranges are as eco- 
nomical as they are beautiful. An oven meal can 
be cooked for only 3J4$ (based on national average electric 
rates). And the deep- well Thrift Cooker saves pennies by 
the piggy-bankful. When you consider the speed with which 
you cook your meals, there's a real saving to you. And with 
all the great G-E convenience features, you'll save yourself 
a lot of work and headaches. 

DEPENDABILITY! General Electric, always a 
leader in its field, always means dependability. 
Whether you're considering the long life of the G-E Range, 
or the efficiency of its operation, you can depend on it that 
the G-E Range is unsurpassed— no matter how you look at 
it. Buy the best — enjoy the best— buy General Electric!

PLENTY OF HOT WATER 
AT THE TURN OF A TAP! 



Think of it ! Gallons and gallons of hot water, day after 
day, year after year . . . automatically. Look at all these 
advantages of heating water the electric way, the 
General Electric way. 

CONVENIENCE! Install it anywhere in your home — no 
chimneys or flues required. Shorter pipe runs mean 
INSTANT hot water. New Tripl-Control lets you regu- 
late hot-water temperatures, to suit your own special 
needs. Special table-top models install right in the kitch- 
en or laundry, provide extra work surface. 



ECONOMY! Famous Heat-wrap Calrod heating units 
insure efficient operation. Shorter pipe runs mean less 
heat loss, more saving for you. Also, many electric service 
companies give special low rates for heating water elec- 
trically. Heat trap, cold-water baffle, highly efficient 
insulation all give increased economy. 

DEPENDABILITY! The General Electric Water Heater is 
built to rigid factory standards. Years of dependable 
operation have made a liberal ten-year tank-protection 
plan possible to safeguard your investment.

[FOR HOUSES WITHOUT BASEMENTS 
Moncrief Counterflow Units 

The new trend in basementless home design where concrete 
slabs are used for the house floor, has been followed by a new 
trend in heating design and construction— equipment that is 
quick and economical to install . . . equipment adaptable to new 
style heating installations — The Moncrief Counterflow unit. 

This uniquely engineered unit has the same, durable heating 
element as the regular utility unit and has the same attractive 
cabinet except that the blower fan is placed at the top of 
the cabinet above the heating element. This type of unit 
draws the return air into the top of the unit and blows the 
heated air downward into the heat -conveying pipes or ducts 
in or below the floor. 

With this type of unit three types of heating installations 
can be made: You can have floor panel heating with the heat 
pipes imbedded in the concrete slab floor . . . or you can have 
warm air register heating by connecting these same heat 
pipes to room registers in wall or floor ... or you can have an 
installation with the heat pipes installed under the slab floor 
in the crawl space, with the pipes connected to registers 
through which the heated air can circulate into the rooms 
being heated.

MAN Y NEW IDEAS have been developed in home construction and decoration in 

recent years. Most prominent among them has been the greater 
use of glass. The purpose of this book is to help you see what 
glass can do for your home ... to show you how you can use it 
to add charm and beauty to every room . . . how it can give 
interiors a more spacious, more cheerful feeling . . . how modern 
glass can make your home more comfortable, and easier to clean. 




GLASS IS A VERSATILE MATERIAL. 



It can be used in many 
more ways than we can show here. But these ideas can be 
adapted, if necessary, by you and your architect to fit your 
individual needs and desires ... to provide more livability, 
more enjoyment. 



AND REMEMBER iH IS . . . glass can do as much for the small house as the 

large, perhaps more. It adds smart, individual touches that 
mark your home as up to date . . , makes it the kind of place 
that will be a constant source of pride and satisfaction to all 
your family ... a home that will win the admiration of all 
who see it.

• Cheerfulness goes hand in hand with daylight 
and outdoor beauty. 

And so, why not plan to bring in more daylight 
and make the most of outdoor views? Open 
your rooms to both — with glass. 

Perhaps you've noticed the trend to larger 
windows in recent years. Why? Not just to be 
different — but because architects and owners 
have found through experience that homes with 
greater window areas are more cheerful, more 
pleasant places in which to live. They have a 
more spacious feel . . . they permit enjoyment 
of the beauties of the ever-changing landscape. 
Such homes capitalize on the often taken-for- 
granted ability of glass to let your eyes roam to 
the outdoors while you sit cozily inside. 

You might wonder about privacy. Your archi- 
tect can take care of that by careful landscaping 
... by facing larger windows away from passing 
traffic ... or by using beautiful translucent 
architectural glass that brings in the light but 
guards your privacy. 

No longer need you worry about excessive heat 
losses where large windows are used . . . even in 
cold climates. That problem has been answered 
with Thermopane— the Libbey -Owens *Ford win- 
dowpane that insulates. Thermopane allows you 










to enjoy the charm of bigger windows with com- 
fort and heat savings you'd never imagine pos- 
sible in cold weather. Thermopane consists of 
two or more panes of glass, with a hermetically - 
sealed dead air space between. You'll find a 
description of Thermopane on pages 22 and 23. 
It's one of the important "better things" that 
technical research and industrial progress have 
made available for your new home. 



Your architect is familiar with the many ways 
glass can give your home greater beauty, charm, 
comfort and a feeling of greater spaciousness. 
These and other benefits are summed up in the 
term "DAYLIGHT ENGINEERING" ... the 
intelligent use of glass to achieve predetermined, 
desired results. Ask your architect to include the 
many advantages of Daylight Engineering in the 
design of every room of your home. 



THE TYPE OF 



wlN DO\N THAT 



BEST MTS tOU» HE* 









• Libbey-Owens-Ford does not make windows . . . 
only the glass with which they are glazed. But we 
wish to call to your attention several types of win- 
dows commonly used in modern home construction. 

PICTURE WINDOWS 

You will want a large 
window in many rooms of 
your home. The big area 
of clear glass presents an 
unobstructed view of the 
outdoors. It brings in 
beauty — brightens and 
livens the whole room. 
You can provide ventila- 
tion with windows which 
open on either side, or a 
louvered opening above or 
below the main window. 



BAY 

You may want your Picture Win- 
dow projected into a bay. It 
provides an area for a window 
seat, or an indoor flower garden. 
And it tends to give the room 
a more spacious feeling. 




CORNER WINDOWS 

Provide a broader view and 
bring daylight in from two 
directions. Widely used in 
recent years, they are very 
popular with homeowners 
who have them. 







DOUBLE-HUNG WINDOWS 

In wood or metal. This is 
the familiar type that 
slides up and down. Such 
windows are available in a 
wide range of types and 
sizes to meet almost any 
requirement for daylight- 
ing and ventilation. 



CASEMENTS 

In metal or wood. Casement 
windows swing in or out- 
some of them are operated by 
a mechanical device on the 
inside window sill. They are 
available in a wide range of 
types and sizes. 



A WORD ON WINDOW DESIGN 




This is a familiar type of window, with 
the glass divided into small panes. Note 
how it cuts up the view, prevents full 
enjoyment of the scene. 



A step to better visibility. This window 
is in keeping with modern trends. Such 
a window offers benefits in easier clean- 
ing and repainting. 



This window provides an unobstructed 
view. In effect, it's a beautiful mural 
you can enjoy the year 'round. Easier 
to clean and repaint, too. 






GLASS PUTS LIFE IN 



T • 

THE 



• Glass has glamor. It offers boundless opportunities to give your living room 
a brighter, cheerier atmosphere— and a feeling of pleasant spaciousness. Glass is 
a practical material, too. It's easy to clean. Its finish is unharmed by spilled 
liquids. And it never needs refinishing. 



• Glass can put zest into every part of your 
living room. You'll want to make the most 
of the outdoor view with a huge Picture 
Window glazed with L*OF Thermopane. 
Behind the sofa you can project a dynamic 
extension of the entire room with a tall, 
broad mirror. And a mirror will dress up 
the mantel, too. Glass is not relegated to 
the walls alone. Oh, no! For an unusual 
flavor, make one of your tables all glass . . . 
use glass shelves for knickknacks, and a 
graceful sweep of glass along your stairway. 
There's no end to the things you can do 
with glass to liven up your living room. 
Try it and see.

COLORFUL MURALS the 

year-round — when you have big 
Picture Windows like these. 
They lift the room out of the 
ordinary, flood it with cheerful 
sunshine. And, because they're 
glazed with Thermopane, com- 
fort is not jeopardized in winter.

glass decorates the I lining room 

• Here's a room that fairly begs for light and cheer ... and there's no better way 
to get them than with glass. Light and cheer go hand in hand with relaxation, 
an important element in any enjoyable meal. 




• What can glass do for your dining room? 
Give it a feeling of extra spaciousness with 
mirrors. Bring in the beauty of the out- 
doors, through Picture Windows. Flood the 
room with a soft, flattering light— from 
fluorescent lamps concealed behind attrac- 
tive, patterned translucent glass. 

Glass is so decorative! Under candlelight, 
it sparkles, catches the high lights, casts 
twinkling reflections. So, as you plan your 
dining-room, remember to take advantage 
of the brilliance of glass— to eliminate dark 
corners and enliven every part of the room. 
There's almost no end to the ways glass can 
add charm to your dining room. Perhaps 
the examples shown here will suggest many 
ideas that fit into your plans. 




CHANGES OF SCENE come 
naturally with changes of weath- 
er and season, through a huge 
Picture Window like this. Glazed 
with Thermopane, it provides 
insulation that saves heat and 
adds comfort. The casements 
open for ventilation.

GLASS BRIGHTENS T 




tcheil** LIGHTENS THE WORK 



• Glass is modern . . . not only in its decorative possibilities, but as a work saver 
as well. It gives luster and color to your kitchen . . . permanent luster and color, 
for glass won't fade or tarnish. And it comes clean with the whisk of a cloth. 



• You'll spend most of your day in the 
kitchen. Make yours cheerful, light, easy 
to work in, by opening the walls with 
glass. Bring in the sunlight and an excit- 
ing view of the outdoors. For wainscoting 
and work surfaces, use Vitrolite, the at- 
tractive, colorful structural glass. It 
gives a sanitary spic-and-span look to 
your kitchen, and reduces cleaning 
chores. Glass adds safety in the kitchen 
because it's noninflammable. 





THIS LIGHT, CHEERY KITCHEN 
uses glass in beautiful ancf practical ways. 
The large, clear Picture Window allows 
enjoyment of the outdoor view. For heat 
saving and comfort, it's glazed with 
Thermopane. Work surfaces are flooded 
with daylight through decorative trans- 
lucent panels of figured glass. If preferred, 
these panels could be clear glass, to permit 
a view of the garden and the flower boxes 
outside. 

The fluted, sliding glass doors eliminate 
groping for the right jar, and add a 
decorative note. Shelves, too, are glass— 
which spares the fuss of endless shelf- paper 
changing. 




TRANSFORM a corner of 
your kitchen into a dinette

PUT SPARKLE IN THE |— ^CXthrOOm • • WITH GLASS 

• You'll want your bathroom not only easy to clean, but clean-looking as well. 
You'll want it colorful, with a touch of smartness. These are desires you easily 
can realize by taking advantage of the versatility of modern glass. 




• There's a lot of satisfaction in having 
a cheerful looking bathroom. It's a room 
that guests always notice — a room which 
marks your home as up to date or old- 
fashioned. So, give it sparkle— give it 
beauty — with glass. 

Glass doesn't mind water, spilled 
lotions or powder. It's a thoroughly prac- 
tical material for surfaces in the bath- 
room — walls, shelves, shower stall. And, 
of course, you'll want an arrangement of 
mirrors — not only for convenience, but 
also to "enlarge" what usually is the 
smallest room in the house. 




A ROOM TO BE PROUD OF . . . 

this striking bathroom, with walls of 
blue and white "Vitrolite structural 
glass. Its lustrous finish always wipes 
clean, always looks new. The deco- 
rative figure is sand-blasted on the 
Vitrolite wall behind the tub. 

The shower stall door is clear glass, j 
Toiletries are arrayed on plate glass 
shelves, backed by a lovely panel of 
patterned glass. The large mirror 
over the washstand aids dressing and 
shaving, accentuates the beauty of 
the entire room. 







CHARM AND PRACTI- 
CALITY join hands in this com- 
bination tub and shower. The 
enclosure provides protection 
from drafts and keeps water 
from splashing into the room. 
Note the full-length mirror ... a 
convenience in any bathroom. 



ADD THE COLOR of your 
towels to your decorative 
scheme. Behind clear glass 
5 doors, they'll always be 
handy. Use clear glass for 
shelves, too.

GLASS DRESSES 




edroom 



• Here's a room that calls for the last word in beauty and loveliness . . . and it's 
a room in which you can use glass effectively in both practical and striking ways. 








• You'll probably have windows on 
two, maybe three, walls of your bedroom. 
How to brighten up the other walls? Use 
mirrors. They'll catch the light and color 
of the outdoors, reflect them into 
the room. Partitions of Satinol decora- 
tive glass offer another novel means of 
brightening inside walls. 

Glass is a versatile decorative ma- 
terial. It has a lustrous, beautiful finish 
that never loses its charm, never needs 
renewing. Among the ideas shown on 
these pages may be just the suggestions 
you need to "dress up" the bedroom 
you are planning. 



PREVENT DULL WALLS by creat- 
ing interesting, colorful areas withj 
mirrors. Here a large mirror between^ 
the windows reflects the beauty of thd 
entire room. And, in effect, it "doubles" 
the spaciousness.

• Climaxing over fourteen years of research, 
L'O'F Thermopane is the first successful 
windowpane ever made with built-in insu- 
lation. 

Thermopane is made of two or more 
panes of glass, separated by an insulating 
layer of dehydrated air, and sealed around 
the edges at the factory with a patented 
metal-to-glass bond — the Bondermetic 
Seal. This seal has successfully withstood 
a shearing force of over 1,000 pounds per 



L-O-F INSULATING 
WINDOWPANE . 



square inch — proof of its amazing strength. 
Until the advent of Thermopane, large 
window areas were generally conceded to 
be impractical in temperate and cold 
climates because of excessive heat losses. 
Because of its double-glass construction, 
Thermopane keeps homes warmer in 
winter and cooler in summer. In addition 
to reducing heating costs and providing 
savings in air conditioning, Thermopane 
deadens the transmission of outside noises. 



Rooms look larger . . . seem to stretch 
out to include the outdoors, through 
Picture Windows. Glazed with Ther- 
mopane, large windows assure greater 
comfort. This insulating unit cuts 
heat loss and reduces downdrafts at 
windows . . . saves fuel in winter. In 
summer, Thermopane helps keep 
rooms cooler.

SPECIAL GLASSES IN THERMOPANE 

• Thermopane may be fabricated with a special 
purpose glass on the outside. Heat Absorbing 
Glass keeps rooms cooler in summer; Golden 
Plate Glass protects against sun fading; colored 
Plate Glass gives unusual effects. And, where it 
is desirable to obscure views, Thermopane may- 
be fabricated with Blue Ridge Patterned Glass. 



THERMOPANE... FOR EVERY WINDOW IN YOUR HOME 



• All the windows in your home can be self- 
insulating . . . with Thermopane. It's made in 
a wide range of standard sizes to fit casements, 
double-hung and fixed Picture Windows. You 
can use Thermopane in all the window styles 
shown on Page 2 of this book, as well as in doors, 
side-lights and transoms. 

Thermopane provides double-glazing in the most 
practical and convenient form. It stays in all 



year. Your windows open and close just like 
single -glazed ones. You need no storm sash. 

Ready-made Sash for Thermopane 

Standard windows suitable for Thermopane are 
being made by manufacturers of wood and metal 
sash. They are available from lumber and build- 
ing supply dealers. Sash for Thermopane can be 
installed in your home as easily as ordinary 
windows . . . offer no problems to your builder. 






LOF 



• For fine Picture Windows and mirrors 
there is no substitute for Polished Plate 
Glass. This glass is ground and polished 
with the objective of making both sides 
flat and parallel, thus providing clear 
vision with a minimum of distortion. Pic- 
ture Windows provide clear visibility when 
made of Polished Plate Glass. The extreme 
flatness of this glass is even more important 
in fine mirrors, for surface irregularities and 
distortion of regular glass are absent. This 
flatness and freedom from distortion are 
two of the reasons why Polished Plate Glass 
is invariably selected for display windows 
in stores and shops. 



POLISHED PLATE GLASS 





L*0*F TUF-FLEX GLASS 

• Tuf -flex is plate glass that has been treated by a special tempering process to give 
it greater resistance to physical and thermal shock. Tuf-flex is widely used in stores 
as doors and stair rails. Its greater strength may also be of interest to home owners, 
for it adds safety wherever glass might be banged or exposed to intensive heat 

L-O-F HIGH-QUALITY WINDOW GLASS 

• Libbey Owens -Ford Window Glass is exception- 
ally clear, and has a natural fire-finished surface 
in which distortion is held to a minimum. It is 
made by an .exclusive Flat Drawn Process which 
produces a clear, bright glass of unusual flatness. 
Due to the longer annealing process employed, 
LOF High-Quality Glass is less brittle, and can 
be cut much easier with less 
breakage. For windows, doors, 
storm sash, and in cabinet fronts 
and shelving, it has proved its 
merit. The well-known LOF 
Window Glass label is your guar- 
antee of the best in window glass. 





FOR COLORFUL, SANITARY 
RE-PROOF, EASY-TO-CLEAN WALLS 



Vitrolite 



Reg. U. S. Pat. Off. 



• No other interior- finish material is more 
suitable to the private home — particularly 
in bathroom and kitchen — than Vitrolite 
structural glass. Its highly polished surface 
is "smooth as glass" for it is glass! Vitrolite, 
while opaque, is available in a variety of 



colors that lend themselves to any decora- 
tive scheme. It is unaffected by ordinary 
household acids and alkalis . . . resists 
scratching and marking, and is easily and 
quickly cleaned with the whisk of a damp 
cloth. Vitrolite never needs resurfacing. 



Vitrolite is ideal for walls in 
bathrooms because it cleans so 
easily. Because of its nonporous 
surface, it provides no hiding 
place for germs . . . and is re- 
sistant to water and other liquids. 






Smooth, sparkling and colorful, Vitro- 
lite kitchen wails are easily cleaned . . . 
unaffected by moisture and odors. The 
smart appearance of these walls is a 
a source of pride to any housewife. 



ICKLY CLEANED WITH A DAMP CLOTH 



1 



• The hard, smooth surface of 
Vitrolite makes it exceptionally 
easy to clean and keep clean. All 
that's needed is a quick once-over 
with a damp cloth or, if badly soil- 



ed, washing with mild soap and 
water. Because of the many colors 
available, practically any color 
scheme can be worked out for 
kitchens and bathrooms.

THE BEST MIRRORS ARE MADE WITH 
L*0 # F POLISHED PLATE GLASS 1 



You can quickly check the 
quality of a mirror by noting the 
correctness of its reflections. At 
the left, inferior glass reflects ir- 
regular lines — causes distortion. 
At the right, a good mirror made 
with Polished Plate Glass has 
true reflections. 





• The finer mirrors are always made of Polished 
Plate Glass because this kind of glass gives clearer, 
truer reflections and greater brilliance. At the 
left, an unframed mirror of L O F Polished Plate 
Glass makes a narrow dining room look wider and 
adds never-fading sparkle. LibbeyO wens 'Ford 
high-quality Polished Plate Glass is used by many 
of the country's finer mirror manufacturers. Some 
homeowners and many specialty shops and de- 
partment store owners prefer colored mirrors. 
Libbey -Owens *Ford makes Polished Plate Glass 
in a variety of colors. If you desire mirrors of 
colored plate glass, your local L O F Distributor, 
your architect or interior decorator will make 
color recommendations. 



GUARANTEE OF TOP-QUALITY MIRRORS 



• To protect the buyers of mirrors, Libbey 'Owens *Ford has 
developed this Mirror Label. By agreement with mirror manu- 
facturers using LOF Polished Plate Glass, this red, white and 
blue identification label appears on all such mirrors made with 
our glass. It is a symbol of protection. Whenever you buy a 
mirror, be sure that it bears this shield of quality, featured by 
better department and furniture stores everywhere.

• Lighter, brighter and more sparkling interiors are 
easily possible in homes of any price range through the 
use of Blue Ridge decorative glasses. These trans- 
lucent glasses add character and quality to otherwise 
plain interiors. Whether used as screens to glaze 
windows against an undesirable view, or to transmit 
light to otherwise-dark areas while adding a decorative 
touch, Blue Ridge figured glasses are entirely in keep- 
ing with an architect's or decorator's concept of 
beauty and utility.

"Plug-in" Strip assures convenient electrical living. 

"Plug-in" Strip provides an electrical outlet for every neefl 
in modern living, plus freedom to "plug-in" new equipmd 
you may buy in years to come — wherever you want to use it! 

When you are in the planning stage, it is almost impossible 
to decide just where furniture, and lamps, and radio, ai 
clocks will all be placed. Maybe the beds will look better 
against that other wall. That would mean the dressing table 
and its lamps must be moved. 

Will there be an electrical outlet handy in that other spot? 

Surely you do not want to chain your furnishings to limited I 
placement in the new house. With "Plug-in" Strip, there! 1 
never be chains of that type on your electrical living. 

Be sure you have full comfort and convenience of electricd 
living — an outlet where you want it, and when you want it- 
have your architect specify and electrical contractor in$tJ| 
"Plug-in" Strip. 

"Plug-in" Strip is a steel wiring channel installed by yot 
electrical contractor. There's an inconspicuous outlet i 
either 6 in. or 18 in. intervals along the face of the strip. 

"Plug-in" Strip mounts as a flush trim on the baseboard. « 
as part of the chair-rail molding, or just above the IcitcL 
work counter. When painted to match wall or molding i 
blends out of sight. 

There's always an "open" outlet with "Plug-in" Strip — ad 
a permanent farewell to unsightly dangerous, drooping ex- 
tension cords, overloaded outlets and lumpy rugs due to win 
sneaking under them — all of which tends to decrease operatinf 
efficiency of appliances and equipment.*

real necessity. Your lamps turn on and off from a touch of the wall 
switch, but radio, television or clock only go "off" when you turn them 
off at the appliance. Best of all, you can group furniture and lamps 
for any and every combination you might desire — there'll always be 
an electrical outlet close at hand.

OIL-FIRED AIR 
CONDITIONING UNIT WITH GUN 
TYPE OIL BURNER 

This oil-fired unit is highly efficient in providing speedy, econom- 
cal delivery of heat on those cold, zero days, keeping the warmed, 
ealthful air in constant circulation. On hot summer days and 
lights the blower can be operated to keep the air in continuous 
irculation. 

As with all Luxaire-engineered units, you can be assured of 
economical performance, long-lived operation and a minimum 
if maintenance and servicing costs. 

Home cleaning and home maintenance are also reduced to a 
linimum, because Luxaire heating elements are made leak-proof 
ind gas-tight by the new method of submerged arc welding. As 
i all Luxaire Air Conditioning Units, filters remove dust, pollen 
ind impurities from the circulating air, and the Automatic 
Humidifier adds the moisture so necessary for healthfulness. 

THE OIL BURNER 

This new, revolutionary type Luxaire Oil Burner has many 
listinctive features, vastly important to economical heating, long 
ife and trouble-free service. 

This burner will provide efficient combustion with the heaviest 
/pes of domestic heating oils, which are generally lower in cost, 
[is so carefully aligned and delicately balanced that mechanical 
/ear is reduced to a minimum. No burner designed to date is as 
asy to service as the Luxaire. Once installed, the air tube part 
if the burner need never be removed. The burner chassis, which 
ontains all the moving parts, is attached to the front of the 
urnace in such a way that loosening 4 nuts, in the matter of a few 
ninutes, releases the burner chassis for inspection or servicing. 



,2 VIRTUALLY ALL 
ZLM4&tfte UNITS ARE DESIGN- 
ED for EITHER GAS or OIL FIRING 

Most Luxaire Air Conditioning Units have been so ingeniously 
sngineered that they are perfectly suitable for either gas or oil 
>urning — and are equally efficient with either fuel. 

If you are undecided now which fuel you prefer to burn, you can 
lave your Luxaire system installed now — air conditioning unit, 
lucts, registers and grills — and finally before the arrival of cold 
veather make the decision whether to add the Luxaire Gas Burner 
>r the Luxaire Oil Burner to your system. 

Or in later years, if you decide to change from Oil firing to Gas 
king, or from Gas to Oil, you simply remove the one Luxaire burner 
and replace it with the other Luxaire, without sacrificing efficiency 
jnd at comparatively small cost. 

Luxaire Gas Fired Units carry the Approval Seal of the American 
jas Association. Luxaire Oil Burners carry the listing of Under- 
vriters' Laboratories, Inc. 




Luxaire Oii-fired]Gun'type

also available in the Utility

FIRED AIR CONDITIONING UNIT 

!f the heating requirements of your new home are within the 
heating capacity of the Luxaire Vaporizing Oil Fired Air 
Conditioning Unit, you can enjoy carefree, automatic heating at 
a surprisingly low first cost and fuel cost.

heavy steel, electrically welded to form a leak proof unit, rugged 
and long lived. This heating element extracts all the heat possible 
from the oil burned. 

The burner is factory assembled and factory adjusted. It is 
easily installed in the unit and it is also difficult to install it incor- 
rectly. Like all Luxaire burners it is highly efficient. For inspection 
or servicing, the burner is speedily removed by loosening 4 
screws and disconnecting the oil line — without disturbing or 
dismantling the furnace or cabinet. 

The Luxaire Pressure Vaporizing Oil Burner has been approved 
by Underwriters' Laboratories, Inc.

FOR BASEMENTLESS HOUSES 



THE 




The Luxaire Counterflow Unit has 
been designed for basementless homes, 
where it is desired to circulate the 
heated air in the concrete floor slab, 
or below it, so that some of the heat 
from the pipes or ducts will pass by 
radiation directly to the floor. Instead 
of the customary location of the air 
handling equipment in the bottom of 
the cabinet, the blower-fan is placed at 
the top, above the heating element, 
and the air is forced downward in a 
counterflow action. 

Luxaire Counterflow units give you 
3 choices of heaHng installations: You 
can have floor panel heating with the 
heat pipes imbedded in the concrete 
floor, or you can have these same im- 
bedded pipes connected to wall or 
floor registers for warm air hecting; or 
you can have the heat pipes installed 



COUNTERFLOW UNIT 

in the crawl space under the floor and 
connected to wall or floor registers, 
thereby providing a circulation of the 
air throughout the home. 

Luxaire Counterflow is a well-built, 
compactly constructed unit. The steel, 
baked enamel cabinet houses the 
rugged, welded steel heating element, 
that extracts heat so economically from 
the fuel being burned. Available either 
as a Gas unit or an Oil unit.

of glass . . . and in most kitchens you will find that there are 
almost innumerable ways to use glass for beauty, practicality 
and efficiency. 

Wouldn't you like to work in one of these lovely kitchens?

Pittsburgh Pk 







Here's how to wash your dishes and admire your garden at 
the same time. It's easy with a large Pittsburgh Twindow — 
the window with built-in insulation — above your kitchen 
sink. No cross-sash to interfere with vision.

Because Carrara is such a durable, ever- 
lasting material with a gleaming inde- 
structible finish, it is perfect for kitchen 
walls. For Carrara is impervious to the 
attacks of steam and water . . . will not 
absorb odors . . . and is so simple to 
keep clean. Easy to apply, too — usually 
fits right over present walls.

There goes the doorbell! But you don't 
have to wonder how you look. Not if you 
have this Plate Glass check-up mirror 
in your kitchen. Helps you look your 
best at a moment's notice. 



A cool, refreshing scene is always be- 
fore the lady who works here. A beauti- 
ful view helps to lighten the drudgery of 
kitchen routine. And if you use Twin- 
dow, the window composed of two panes 
of glass with a hermetically-sealed air- 
space between, you'll virtually eliminate 
drafts and moisture condensation.

Glass glamorizes your bathroom 



A modern, sparkling bathroom is dear to every woman's heart. And when 
it can be practical as well as beautiful it becomes a "dream bathroom" in- 
deed! And this is one dream you can make come true! With Pittsburgh 
Glass you can create a bathroom you can proudly display to all your guests 
—and we know they'll be envious. At the same time you'll have one that's 
exceptionally easy to clean. 

What's more, the man of the house will like lots of glass in the bathroom, 
too. For it is strong, practical and permanent, is easy to install and requires 
no costly maintenance. 










Four ways to use Pittsburgh Glass to create a beautiful bathroom: Tranquil Green 
Carrara Glass for durable, easy-to-clean walls— a handsome Plate Glass mirror 
above the lavatory — a tub enclosure of transparent Plate Glass to eliminate drip- 
ping shower curtains — and a panel of PC Glass Blocks to admit plenty of light . . . 
while retaining privacy. 



13 




Go ahead . . . splash! The handsome counter top and walls of 
Carrara can take it. They laugh at water . . . come sparkling clean 
and shiny with a quick wipe with a damp cloth. Practical and 
beautiful, too, are the Plate Glass mirrors above the lavatory. 



Beauty can be practical in your bathroom. With easy-to-clean, easy- 
to-install walls of Carrara Glass you get enduring good looks and 
charm. And there are ten beautiful colors of Carrara available- 
Gray, Ivory, Tranquil Green, Forest Green, Rembrandt Blue, Beige, 
Wine, Orange, Black and White— for a variety of color schemes.

Cheerful mornings will become a habit in a bathroom as attractive 
as this. Gray Carrara Structural Glass for permanent, beautiful 
walls . . , and silvered Pittsburgh Plate Glass for the unusual series 
of mirrors and for the mirror-lined niche. 



Stop and think . . . about the many advantages of a Carrara-walled 
bath. Permanence— once installed Carrara is there to stay. Beauty 
—Carrara's depth of color and the perfect reflectivity of its ground 
and polished surface add to the beauty of any bath. Easy cleaning — 
Carrara is installed in large panels, so many joint crevices, lodging 
places for dust and dirt, are eliminated.

Glass wakes up your bedroom 



Greet each day with a smile ! A cheerful, comfortable bedroom helps 
you do just that . . . starts you on your way refreshed and contented. 
Many homemakers have made dull, uninteresting bedrooms restful 
and inviting — have added life, color and beauty by the generous use 
of Pittsburgh Glass Products. 

And you can do the same for your bedroom usually at a cost so low 
you will be amazed. The following photographs illustrate several of 
the possible ways to use glass effectively. Perhaps they will give you 
some ideas for waking up your bedroom. 



Here's versatility plus! 
This panelled wall mir- 
ror plays a triple role — 
it makes the room seem 
much larger than it 
really is — serves as the 
dressing table looking 
glass — and also gives 
you a full-length head- 
to-toe checking mirror. 
Such panelled mirrors 
are easy to install, easy 
to keep clean and spar- 
kling; so are the mirror 
tops on the vanity and 
chest of drawers. 




16 





Oops! . . . spilled, but no harm done. The vanity is protected 
with a Plate Glass mirrored top. And if the surface of your 
vanity is already damaged, a mirrored top will conceal all the 
scratches. 



SKYLINE SUITE DESIGNED BY THE WALTER M. 
BALLARD CORP. FOR THE NEW YORKER HOTEL 

Bedroom for a modern miss! And what could be more 
modern than a beautiful Plate Glass structural mirror 
behind the vanity. Adds to the beauty of the room and is 
large enough to do a thorough make-up job. An added 
feature is the unusual arrangement of Plate Glass tops 
to create a handy shelf while guarding the finish of the 
dressing table. 





Your husband will appreciate having a mir- 
ror — a big orce— above his chest of drawers. 
And don't forget a Plate Glass top for the 
chest. Then if he's careless with cigarettes 
... if he throws keys and change on the 
dresser a little too energetically — the finish 
is safe from scars. 



There's plenty of light in this room! The 
large Twindow picture window admits an 
abundance of natural daylight and frames 
a living picture. The panel of PC Glass 
Blocks admits daylight, too, yet assures com- 
plete privacy to occupants of the room.

for/Moor Mirrors 



Simply measure the distance from edge to edge of the door itself 
as shown in the diagram at left. This over-all width determines 
which of the five door mirror sizes, listed below, will cover the 
recessed door panel. 

Five standard sizes available 

Pittsburgh Door Mirrors are designed to cover most of the door 
area ... a real full-length mirror. There is a size available to fit 
every door. Available in both framed and Venetian styles, Pitts- 
burgh Mirrors are easily installed. 



Door Width 



Mirror Size, Venetian or Framed 



16" x 68" 
18" x 68" 
20" x 68" 
22" x 68" 
24" x 68" 




Note: Since most doors in the home are 
eighty inches tall, these mirrors have 
been designed for that size. If you need 
mirrors for doors shorter or taller than 
eighty inches, contact the nearest Pitts- 
burgh dealer for a custom-size mirror. 



Instructions for installing 
Door Mirror 



Installation of door mirror is extremely 
simple. An instruction sheet is included 
with each mirror. A screw driver and a 
few minutes' time are all you need. 



Mirror may be installed with the door in place, but the work will be facilitated if the pins are removed 
from the hinges so that the door may be laid flat. Center the mirror on the door so that it completely 
covers the recessed panels. With a screw driver apply clips or frame to the door.

aged complete with instruction 
sheet for installation by customer.

ished in antique white, are drilled 
with six holes for screws, package 
of six screws attached.

How to make a pattern for a 



Plate Glass Top 



It's easy to have a custom-made, perfectly-fitted Plate Glass or mirror top for 
your table or vanity if you follow these two simple steps : 

1. Cover top of table with a lightweight Kraft paper (preferably something 
stronger than newspaper). In case of large tables, paste several sheets se- 
curely together to make the pattern. Hold flat by resting books or other weights 
near edges. Trace around outside edge with a pencil. Be sure to have con- 
tinuous legible line indicating edge. For a rectangular table, the over-all 
dimensions plus an exact pattern of one corner will suffice. Do not cut pattern 
with scissors along penciled pattern line. 



2. Roll paper and give pattern to your local dealer. Remember that the fin- 
ished top will be exactly the same as the paper pattern, and that the supplier 
of the pattern assumes all responsibility for the fit. Take time to make sure 
your pattern is a perfect fit!

TWINDOW, 



insulating units 

Twindow is composed of two or more panes of Polished Plate 
Glass with a hermetically-sealed air space between and a 
frame of stainless steel to protect the seal and glass edges. 
When used for picture windows — it adds to health and com- 
fort . . . reduces heating costs . . . eliminates frosty or 
"steamy" windows . . . minimizes cold downdrafts. And be- 
cause Twindow is a complete unit, it is as easy to install as 
a single pane of glass. 







Do you know how to make a warm room "cool"? To make 
a long room appear "square"? Or to lower a high ceil- 
ing? It's easy with Color Dynamics! 

The principles of Color Dynamics as developed by the 
Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company involve the utilization of 
the energy in color. It has been definitely proved that 
color can be used to produce certain effects, that some 

*Trade-mark Registered 



colors help you relax and be cheerful, others stimulate or 
depress, and still others set up actual irritation and 
physical discomfort. Don't experiment with color — use 
Color Dynamics and Pittsburgh Paints to create a home 
that is healthier, happier and more livable for all the 
family, more attractive and inviting to every guest. 

See your nearest Pittsburgh Paint Dealer, or any of the 
branches listed on the back cover for further information.

Only Glass can give yon 
so huh li — lor so little 



As you use glass in decorating you will find many other 
places where you can give your home extra charm, extra 
color, extra practical usefulness by the strategic applica- 
tions of glass. Every dollar you spend for glass shows . . . 
whether it's a Plate Glass bric-a-brac shelf or a full-wall 
structural mirror. First cost of glass is last cost, and the 
initial cost is spread over many years of service. No other 
material can do so much for so little. 



I 








A den for Dad. A panel of PC Glass BIocl 
gives him lots of light . . . privacy ... a 
quiet. A sparkling Plate Glass top protecl 
his desk. So practical, so good looking! 



The gang's all here! When teen-agers ge 
together, youthful exuberance sometime 
takes command . . . and table tops tak 
a beating. Protect your furniture froi 
scratches, glass rings and finger prints h 
covering the tops with Plate Glass. It look 
swell and costs so little! 



22 




Dark stairwells can be dangerous. So play safe . . . 
light your stairs with a panel of PC Glass Blocks. They 
add to the attractiveness of the house, inside and out. 




Beauty and the budget! You'll scarcely believe how 
inexpensive a handsome framed mirror like this can 
be. It looks so well — adds so much charm — wherever 
it is placed. Other mirrors of Pittsburgh Plate Glass 
are available in a variety of frames and styles to match 
or blend with any type of furniture.

ELECTRIC "SPOT" VENTILATOR 
COMBINATION FAN AND BLOWER 



Y PROUD OF YOUR NEW HOME BY KEEPING IT FRESH -THE FOLLOWING PAGES TELL YOU HOW 



You can keep that new home look 




the hard way 



Back-breaking work, housemaid's knee, 
calloused hands— these are the rewards for 
keeping that new home look the hard way! 
Steam, grease and odors laugh at your efforts 
to win your own personal war against them. 
Then, of course, there is the expense of soap, 
detergents, mops, cleaning compounds and 
brushes. Savings on these items alone will pay 
for your Bio-Fan in a short time— to say nothing 
of cleanliness, extra leisure and more comfort 
. . . Add hours of pleasure to your day with 
Bio-Fan— it costs so little . . . saves so much. 



the Bio-Fan way 

A Bio-Fan "Spot" ventilator is installed 
directly over the point of air pollution, where a 
fan belongs. Thus, Bio-Fan helps nature whisk 
away steam, odors, and fumes as fhey rise, 
before they can spread. They don't have an 
opportunity to soil walls or ceiling. 

Be sure your home ventilators ore Bio-Fans 
—for twenty-six years Pryne and Company 
has been satisfying home owners* by making 
superior ventilators designed particularly for 
domestic use — don't say "fan" say "Bio-Fan" 
. . . There is a difference! 



WHERE TO "SPOT" BLO-FAN 



BLO-FAN IN THE KITCHEN 

Whisks away steam, greasy cooking vapors, 
and unpleasant odors. . . Keeps the house- 
wife's workshop clean and comfortable. 



BLO-FAN IN THE LAUNDRY 

Assures springtime freshness in any weather 
—hot steam is expelled immediately ... No 
need for a new hair-do after wash day chores 
are done. 



BLO-FAN IN THE BATH 

Eliminates embarrassment, steam-streaked 
walls, and fogged mirrors ... It takes more 
than plumbing to make a bathroom. 



BLO-FAN IN THE GAME ROOM 

Means no more "morning-after" mustiness— 
no irritating liquor fumes and tobacco smoke' 
. . . When used as a spare bedroom, it's like 
sleeping outdoors. 




DOCTOR — "Keeps contaminated air from spreading. It's good 
for your family's health, comfort and good humor." 

ARCHITECT— "Installation directly over the point of air pollu- 
tion is where a home ventilator belongs to move more air 
quickly, quietly, and more efficiently." 

HOME ECONOMIST— "Cooking cabbage or frying fish and 
onions is a real problem unless you have a Bio-Fan," 

HOUSEWIFE — "With my Bio-Fan running t scarcely know the 

range is on — and my kitchen wa//s and woodwork stay so 

cfeon and dry." 

INTERIOR DECORATOR— "The ideal ventilator should have a 

minimum opening and an attractive grill — you know, like 

Bio-Fan" 

Bio-Fan Meets All These Requirements— and then some! 



Here's hoi 



does it!.

PRYNE & CO., INC. 



HAS THIS PATENTED BLADE 




FAN 





Fan— 75% of the air moved by 
a breeze fan is thrown from 
the blade tips. The center is so 
weak that when the air meets 
resistance it is merely sucked 
back into the center arid recir- 
culated. A fan delivers volume, 
but lacks power. 



BLOWER 

A blower draws a smaller 
amount of air into the vortex, 
discharging it with greater 
power, thus overcoming resist- 
ance. A blower delivers air 
with power, but lacks volume. 



BLO-FAN 

Bio-Fan combines the volume 
of a breeze fan with the power 
of a blower. The fan portion of 
the blade feeds air to the 
blower portion, thereby dis- 
charging more air faster. 



lis what happens in a kitchen where the fan 
at directly over the range: 

reasy cooking steam and odors rise until they strike the 
>g and spread. 2. They must literally be dragged across 
:eiling to the fan. 3. They are caught in cross drafts and 
ed into other rooms. 4. If a fan is placed in an outside 
and an adjoining window or door is left open, most of 
lischarged air will come directly from the door or window, 
leaving most of the room unaffected. 



! is what happens in a kitchen which 
i a Bio-Fan "Spot" Ventilator: 

Jo-Fan removes foul air where nature is trying to get it 
-over the source. 2. Blotan acts as a "booster" to natural 
ilation, helping nature remove polluted air. 3. Bio-Fan 
is greasy cooking steam from striking the ceiling or set- 
on walls and furnishings. Practically eliminates spread 
dors through the home. 4. Bio-Fan insures cleanliness- 
ides maximum protection to health and comfort. 




The unusual design of this blade is the secret of Bio-Fan 
superiority. It's easy to see how the fan portion scoops up 
air and the blower portion expels it with great force. No 
other ventilator has this blade! 




BLO-FAN IS EASY 
TO CLEAN 

Grill and motor assembly 
may be easily removed for clean- 
ing by merely unscrewing the 
large center cap— no tools re- 
quired. Motor is fully enclosed for 
long life, rubber-mounted for 
quietness, cooled by the air 
stream, and is radio-interference 
proof. Entire unit fits flush with 
the finished ceiling or wall; only 
the attractive grill is visible. 



WINTER OR SUMMER 

If your home is heated by 
forced air, the ventilation prob- 
lem in winter will be aggravated, 
because unwanted air that es- 
capes from kitchen, bath, game 
room or laundry will be vigor- 
ously circulated through the en- 
tire house! Bio-Fan prevents this! 
If your home is air-conditioned, 
the summer ventilation problem 
will be even worse, for with doors 
and windows tightly sealed, there 
is no escape for polluted air. 
Bio-Fan skims it off!

The versatile Bio-Fan is designed for easy in- 
stallation in the best spots— directly above the point 
of air pollution ... It can be installed either in the 
ceiling or in the wall without sacrificing valuable 
cabinet space . . . However, ceiling installation is 
recommended because Bio-Fan is well above head 
height where it catches All the odors, steam, grease, 
and smoke. Requires only V/z" behind plaster; uses 
standard 3W'xlO" furnace duct. Ducts are dis- 
charged through the roof, the eaves, or outside wall.

DON'T BE MISLED! The only CFM figures which mean anything are for ACTUAL discharge. So-called 
"Free Air" ratings of fans are often 2 or 3 times greater than actual discharge through the ventilator. The 
"Actual" figures above show what Bio-Fan takes out of the room through 10' of duct and a wall cap. 
(Merely divide the "Actual" figure into the cubic content of the room to ascertain the air change per 
minute.)

CONVENIENCE AND PROTECTION 



of SQUARE D's CIRCUIT BREAKER 

It controls the distribution of electric current and protects your home 
against the hazards of short circuits and dangerous overloads. It ends 
FOREVER the annoyance and inconvenience of blown fuses. 

The Circuit Breaker ELIMINATES FUSES COMPLETELY. When a short cir- 
cuit or dangerous overload occurs the circuit is cut off automatically. A 
simple movement of a non-metallic shock-proof lever restores current un- 
less danger still exists. The Square D Circuit Breaker is approved by 
Underwriters' Laboratories for all home construction. 

Circuit Breakers are the most modern electrical control available. They 
are not expensive and, as your electrical contractor will tell you, they 
cost no more to install than fusible equipment. 

^^ Ask your architect to specify Square D Circuit Breakers 
fr See that your contractor installs Square D Circuit Breakers 




ENOUGH CIRCUITS to spread the electrical load. If too many 
appliances are in use at the same time and on the same circuit, 
your appliances can't serve you as efficiently as they should. 

ENOUGH OUTLETS. By providing for enough outlets in every 
room, you do away with long extension cords. Also, you allow 
yourself complete leeway in rearranging your furniture. 

THE SQUARE D CIRCUIT BREAKER. It ends, forever, the an- 
noyance and inconvenience of changing fuses. Nothing to for- 
get — nothing to replace. 



No annoying delays. Current 
is restored when it is needed. 




t&tieaoy 



TO GET THE PROTECTION AND CONVENIENCE OF 

THE MODERN CIRCUIT BREAKER IF YOU WILL INSIST... 

1 . That the architect specifies Circuit Breakers 
in your plans. 

1. That your contractor installs them. 

NO OTHER FORM OF ELECTRICAL PROTECTION CAN GIVE YOU 
ALL THE CONVENIENCES OF THE SQUARE D CIRCUIT BREAKER 



Oe 



^dUM IT'S SQUARE D BECAUSE... 






Square D has been the pioneer in the designing and manufacturing 
of residential circuit breakers. 

Square D Circuit Breakers are now protecting millions of circuits 
throughout the world. 

Square D, as your architect, builder or electrical contractor will tell you, 
symbolizes quality and dependability throughout the electrical industry.

The Truscon Residential Double-Hung Steel Window incorporates many special 
features not found in other windows of similar type or function. Of major 
importance is the fact that the sash members are of tubular construction. This 
adds greatly to the strength, durability and finished appearance of the window. 
Weights and cords are absent from this window. Operation is controlled by spring 
balances equipped with tapes of stainless steel. Quiet, positive action and long, 
trouble-free life are assured. 

Screening is easily and attractively accomplished through the inclusion of a rebate on the 
exterior of the window frame, which permits flush installation of screens and combination 
screen and storm sash units. 

The low cost is reflected not only in the window price but in all accessories. 
Frames are prepared to receive screens and storm sash of the simplest and most 
economical type. Shade, drapery, curtain or Venetian blind fixtures, of 
standard types, are easily attached to the interior side.

for durability. Truscon Steel Win- 
dows have a reputation for proved 
durability. The skill and experience 
which produced the design and con- 
struction for windows in such famous 
structures as the Empire State, Mar- 
shall Field, Rockefeller Center and 
U. S. Department of Commerce build- 
ings is the same skill and experience 
that goes into the design and con- 
struction of Truscon's Residential 
Double-Hung Steel Windows, The 
window is electro-galvanized, Bonder- 
ized and given a baked-on prime coat 
of paint.

WIDE SWINGING VENTS PERMIT CON- 
TROLLED VENTILATION. In rooms where 
windows are opened and closed fre- 
quently or where ventilation needs 
are great and varied, Truscon Resi- 
dence Steel Casements fill a utilitarian 
need, in addition to being decorative. 
Clean, bright, air-controlled kitchens 
are possible and a slight, fingertip 
touch adjusts window opening. Side

that they invite or retard the flow of 
air. High, small or unusually placed 
window openings all become more 
useful and attractive when fitted with 
Steel Casements.

tract from the appearance of your 
home. Steel Casements, due to their

invite you to stop and see the beauty 
that lies within. Their slender and 
graceful lines offer practically no bar- 
rier to light. They let the glorious 
sunshine and beautiful vistas in. Steel 
Casements harmonize with all styles 
of architecture. 

SLENDER LINES ADMIT MORE LIGHT AND 
vision. Look at those smart, trim 
lines! There's a note of modern beauty 
here that can't be missed. Yes — and 
the beauty of these Truscon Case- 
ments is permanent because they are 
made of steel. Take note of the larger 
glass area. Imagine how their stream- 
lined beauty and grace will adapt 
themselves perfectly to your personal 
plans for decorating your new home. 
It's fun to plan each room . . . be- 
cause into each will go some element 
of your own personality and good 
taste.

DON'T IEAVE YOUR HEATING j 

TO CHANCE! 

To be right, heating must be planned 

No longer do we build a house and then look for a means of keeping it warm. Engineering 
skill and just plain common sense have taught us to do just the opposite! Today we take the 
many factors into consideration that affect the heating of our homes and apply them to our 
basic building plans. Thus, the heating system, as an integral part of our home, functions more 
efficiently, more dependably, and more economically. Better living through better planning— 
that's what we mean by planned heating. 

. . .planned for the type of home you have in mind | 

Will your home have two stories? Or will it ramble? Is it going to have a basement? If so, how 
large? What about picture windows, stair wells, etc.? All these, and more, are factors your 
qualified heating dealer must take into consideration before you make your choice. 

. . .planned for the size of home you have in mind J 

The selection of a heating system, and of a particular unit, depends largely upon the heating 
job called for in the years ahead. A poor selection will result in either an overworked unit or 
one that is out of proportion to what you need. The inevitable outcome is needless expense or 
less heating satisfaction for the winters to come. 

. . .planned for the locality in which you'll build 

Climate will have to be taken into consideration as it will affect heat loss, length of heating 
season, and temperature ranges. Moreover, comparative costs of gas, oil and coal are deter- 
mined by local availability. Your qualified heating dealer can advise you on these points to 
help you make a wise choice. 

. . .planned for the price you have in mind 

The cost of your heating system is almost entirely determined by all the other factors men- 
tioned on this page. Keep in mind that the best advice you have heard is to install a quality 
unit. Heating is an investment, not a bargain basement item. A quality unit will pay for itself 
again and again over the years. 

. . .planned for the kind of heating you prefer 

Once you have taken all the above factors into consideration, you are ready to make your 
choice— tempering it with any strong personal preferences you may have. Remember— you expect 
to live with your heating system for many years— so make certain it's what you really want! If 
you have any strong likes or dislikes, talk them over with your qualified heating dealer and 
your builder. Careful pre-planning can overcome many obstacles. Above all— get the right 
kind of installation . . . get the right heating unit . . . and all the joy and comfort of modern, 
planned heating will be yours in the many, pleasant years ahead.

LOOK FOR WATERBURY DESIGNED HEATING WHEREVER BETTER HOMES ARE BUILT 



. .first let's consider the simplest of 

modern heating systems 

f he gravity warm air method of home heating is by far the least 
J expensive to install and offers a real economy of operation. How- 
ever, this type of installation is practical only in homes that meet 
the following qualifications. 

To begin with, the general layout of rooms must be fairly compact with the 
furnace and chimney located near the center of the basement. The size of the 
rooms should be average to small and should not number more than 4 to 5 
on the first floor. 

If your plans agree with those general specifications, you can go ahead with 
the installation if you so choose. Gravity warm air heat is designed especially 
for your type of home. 

The advantages of gravity heating systems are self-evident. The relative 
compactness of space allows a simple, extremely economical method of intro- 
ducing warm air into the rooms above the heating plant. The lighter, heated 
air flows upward,' out of the registers and into the rooms. Heavier, room 
temperature air flows downward through the grills to be heated. The result is 
an automatic circulation of air. By the same token, the simplicity of the 
system makes for an economical installation, thus cutting the original cost to 
a great extent. 

Before you go ahead with the installation of a gravity system, take the 
matter up with your authorized heating dealer. He'll look over your plans and 
tell you whether or not this type of heating would be practical for your home. 
It is important that you take this precaution, because the very simplicity of 
the system restricts it to just those homes meeting the requirements stated 
above. A large home, or one in which the rooms are spread out over an 
unusually wide area, cannot be heated adequately by a gravity installation. 
It would be wiser, and more economical in the long run to select a type of 
heating from those discussed on the following pages. 



For a prompt and courteous con- 
sideration of your heating prob- 
lems, call your nearest authoriz 
Waterbury dealer.

panel heated home presents an entirely different conception of 
heating comfort. Because it is something different, it has become a 
subject of great controversy wherever heating is discussed. A look 
at what it is, and how it works will help you to decide for yourself— with the 
aid of a good heating engineer— whether or not it is suitable for your new 
home. 




DIAGRAM OF PANEL INSTALLATION 

What Takes Place in a Panel System 

Warm air is circulated through ducts in floor (as shown in this particular 
diagram) or in ceiling, giving uniform radiation of heat rays to all objects and 
occupants in the room. This radiation effect makes possible a feeling of 
comfort at lower than ordinary temperatures. The state of comfort without 
obvious heat is the closest approach yet to perfect indoor comfort, the final 
goal of warm air heating research engineers. However, some people like to 
feel "extra warm," and sometimes sharp outdoor temperature changes call for 
additional heat immediately. For these requirements— plus the advantages of 
humidified, filtered air and summer circulation— many heating engineers 
recommend that warm air registers be built into the panel. Direct warm air 
heating can be introduced into any room simply by opening the register! 
Panel heat has proven itself ideal for the slab type or basementless home. 
Though the adoption of panel heat does add to the cost of construction of 
your home, it provides uniform heat for all parts of the house with an eco- 
nomical fuel consumption. 



Let your Authorized Waterbury 
Dealer help you by making a 
heating layout for your new 
home. He is glad to be of service. 




. . . for your modern basementless home 



^ 0000 ^ I I / ewer still is perimeter heat, becoming more and more popular 
y 1/ with the builders of basementless homes. By laying warm air 
pipes in the floor or using a crawl space for heat distribution, a 
uniform floor temperature is maintained. Registers in each room, located 
around the perimeter of the house— at the source of greatest heat loss— pro- 
vide gently circulated, heated air all through the house. This system is ideal 
for basementless homes. If you have decided upon panel or perimeter heat, 
the only caution necessary is to make sure you obtain the services of a qual- 
ified heating supplier. If he agrees to make the installation, you can rest 
assured that there is sufficient heating research data and engineering facts 
behind his decision to guarantee real comfort in the future, the kind of 
comfort that can come only from modern, designed heating. 




DIAGRAM OF PERIMETER INSTALLATION 

These Modern Types of Heating, Properly Engineered, are Successful 

Undoubtedly, shortly after the first moment you decided to build, the subject 
of panel or perimeter heat entered the picture. Since then, the idea (l) has 
been accepted wholeheartedly by all members of the family (2) was rejected 
on the spot (3) has ever since been subjected to great controversy, getting 
criticism and praise from every direction. 

First of all, panel heat, though not new, is different— out of the ordinary. 
It presents some unknown factors to the average citizen. Add to that the 
claims of skeptics, now developed into full-grown rumors, and you have 
enough doubts to discourage all but the most imaginative of home builders. 
The fact of the matter is that properly installed panel heat has proven success- 
ful, and in certain types of homes will provide many advantages not offered 
by other systems.

perimeter heat — see your local 
Waterbury dealer — his advice

. . . here's heating preferred by 

the majority of today's planners 



s 




uppose the plans for your home or your own personal preferences 
have eliminated both gravity and panel heating. Then you probably 
are looking for the features found in a forced warm air system. This is 
the most popular type of heating used in homes today. It is easily adaptable 
to homes of all sizes— large, average and small. Where rooms are large or are 
to be spread out over an unusually wide area, forced warm air is especially 
suitable. An explanation of this system, how it operates and what it can accom- 
plish, will serve to point out its particular advantages and enable you to apply 
its principles to your own particular situation. You will then see why this 
method of modern home heating has become the most popular in recent years. 

What Takes Place in a Forced Air System 

Air movement in this type of heating system is controlled by a blower 
mounted within the casing of the heating unit. Room temperature air is first 
drawn into the unit and is moved through filters which remove impurities 
such as dust particles and lint. It is then heated to the proper temperature. As 
the air leaves the unit, the proper amount of moisture is added, giving it an 
out-of-doors freshness. The now heated, filtered, and humidified air is forced 
up through the ducts, expelled from the registers, and moved gently through 
the rooms. This constantly circulating air provides a freshness and remarkably 
uniform heat throughout your home— and throughout the heating season. 
Only through the use of a forced warm air heating system can you secure the 
advantages, in one package, of humidification, filtration, and circulation. Yes 
—even making possible the future addition of equipment for automatic cool- 
ing, bacteria and pollen elimination— truly the ultimate in indoor climate 
control!

\ £ J erhaps your home will not have a basement, and you have 
* #** decided against installing panel or perimeter heat. What then? 

The answer is that you can still have forced warm air heat with- 
out sacrificing valuable floor space in order to accommodate a large conven- 
tional air conditioning type unit.' A hi-boy model air conditioner, such as the 
one shown at the upper right, is designed especially for basementless homes 
or homes with part basements where space economy is to be desired. In this 
type of unit, the blower compartment is located below the unit proper allow- 
ing the entire heating plant to be fitted into a surprisingly small amount of 
floor space— either in the basement or the utility room.

I 



Planning your kitchen is easy, and you'll have a lot of 

fun doing it! 

Remember these two basic points when you plan: 

1. Kitchen equipment can be selected as furniture, 
just as furniture is purchased for other rooms in the 
house. A minimum number of pieces can be bought as 
a starter, and more added as means permit. 

2. The Cabinet Sink or Electric Sink should be con- 
sidered as the work center, around which other equip- 
ment will be placed, because two thirds of kitchen 
activity is carried on at the sink. 

There are other things to consider in any kitchen plan. You 
will, for example, need a survey of the kitchen, noting the 
location of plumbing, windows, doors, radiators, lights, and 
other permanent fixtures. The location of these items in an 
existing kitchen may affect the kitchen plan. In a new 
home the kitchen can be easily planned before construction 
begins. 

You will want to decide where your sink is to be located 
so that other units can be properly placed. You may want 
your sink under a window, or maybe not. It is particularly 



desirable when remodeling an old kitchen to place the new 
Cabinet Sink so that existing plumbing connections can b, 
used, unless this location is not convenient to other units. 

When deciding on base and wall cabinets, adequate 
storage should be provided. There must be room to store 
glasses, cooking utensils, linens, table dishes, staple gro- 
ceries, small appliances, cleaning supplies and equipment. 

At the same time, adequate work space must be included. 
When enough counter space is provided, work flows smooth- 
ly and less time and energy are consumed. You will ob- 
viously want counter area near the sink, near the range, 
and near the refrigerator. 

When placing your refrigerator, remember to have it so 
the door opens to give access to the refrigerator from adja- 
cent counter space. (This will usually mean the door hinges 
will be on the side farthest away from your Cabinet Sink.)

and increase the value of your home! 






C~- 



A modern, rugged, durable, all-steel Youngstown 
Kitchen adds to the value of your home. You also 
make it more modern and thereby protect what you 
have already invested in the house. 

Your Youngstown Kitchen investment pays off in 
added value now and in the future „ . . in daily time 
and work savings ... in the pleasure of beautiful and 
efficient surroundings ... in the satisfaction that the 
best modern things always give. 



Most wise investors, when they do not have ready cash, 
finance their investments when the opportunities pre- 
sent themselves. You can enjoy the advantages of 
credit, too, just like thousands of other families who 
have purchased Youngstown Kitchens through one of 
the 8 plans outlined here. 

Check them all. Learn what you will gain by having 
your Youngstown Kitchen now, at today's advan- 
tageous prices. 



PLAN NO. 1- USING YOUR BANK 

Millions of people have bought kitchens with money 
obtained from their banks. The cost of this method is 
very low. 

By this method you can get the cash to improve your 
property by the addition of a modern kitchen just as a mer- 
chant modernizes his store with new fixtures or a new front. 
Practically every family has the necessary security in prop- 
erty, insurance policies, stocks, or bonds to obtain the money 
needed. Ask your banker. He will suggest many possibilities. 



PLAN NO. 2— REFINANCING THE 
MORTGAGE 

Thousands of home owners have paid off such a high 
percentage of their mortgage that the mortgagor is very 
much interested in refinancing to increase the mortgage 
by the amount required for a new kitchen. 

To refinance your mortgage in this manner, first plan your 
new Youngstown Kitchen with your dealer. Then take the 
cost estimate to your mortgagor. (Remember: When you 
do modernize this way, your home value will go up by a 
great amount, both in dollars and utility.) 

PLAN NO. 3— OPEN-END MORTGAGE 
(Payments not increased) 

You may be able to obtain an Open-End Mortgage or be 
able to refinance your home under one. 

One form of Open-End Mortgage provides that if you 
have sufficient equity in your home, you may borrow addi- 
tional money for modernization without increasing the amount 
ot each monthly payment. You merely increase the number 
oi them. 



PLAN NO. 4— OPEN-END MORTGAGE 
(Time not increased) 

There is another form of Open-End Mortgage in which 
the number of payments remaining will not be changed. 
I You simply increase the size of monthly payments by 
a small amount. 



PLAN NO. 5-F.H.A. 

The National Housing Act was passed by Congress to 
make it easier and less costly to buy new homes or 
modernize existing ones. Under this Act, the Federal 



Housing Administration was created. Title I of the Act 
insures private lending institutions against loss on loans 
for property repair or improvement and makes the loans 
very attractive to many financing institutions. 

Since Youngstown Kitchens equipment is considered as 
permanent improvement, its installation may be financed 
under Title I of the Act. This plan of financing is available in 
most areas. Simply ask your Youngstown Kitchen dealer or 
banker, and he will direct you to sources of this type of 
financing. 

PLAN NO. 6— TIME PAYMENT FINANCING 

Under certain conditions it may not be possible or may 
not be considered desirable to use any of the above plans. 
But that need not stop you from enjoying a Youngstown 
Kitchen now. Time payment financing may still be pos- 
sible, either through your Youngstown Kitchen dealer 
or through a bank or finance company. Thousands of 
families with good credit standing and ability to pay find 
this method of financing new Youngstown Kitchens very 
desirable. 

PLAN NO. 7— UNIT-BY-UNIT 
MODERNIZATION 

This plan can be called a "pay-as-you-go plan" 

It is possible because Youngstown Kitchens units are stand- 
ardized so that you can start with a few pieces and add to 
them later. 

First, plan your complete Youngstown Kitchen with your 
Youngstown Kitchen dealer. Then, decide which units you 
want to install first and have them put in at once. At the same 
time, your dealer will give you a plan that you can use when 
your budget will permit installation of the additional units. 

Your completed Youngstown Kitchen will be one beautiful 
ensemble, scientifically planned for your own kitchen space. 



PLAN NO. 8— BUILDING OR BUYING A 
HOME NOT COMPLETED 

// you are building a home or buying a new home that 
is not yet complete, you may include a modern, all-steel 
Youngstown Kitchen complete in your original mortgage. 

Your Youngstown Kitchen will keep your home modern for 
years to come, with the Youngstown Kitchens Electric Sink, 
including automatic Jet-Tower Dishwasher, plus the Youngs- 
town Kitchens Food Waste Disposer. You get dozens of other 
work-saving, timesaving features available only in Youngstown 
Kitchens.
